I have tried to reload the page without result. What to do?

Did you check the boxes to the left of the people's names to mark them "Complete"? If you did, remove the checkmarks. Those checkmarks indicate that you have finished working with the person -- you don't intend to add them to WikiTree. No ADD button will appear for a person who has that box checked.
Only the pre-1700 are marked. Still don´t know what to do
So maybe there's a phantom match that you overlooked.

Try opening a COMPARE screen for someone post 1700 who has a match on Wikitree. With luck, you'll see Add buttons for that person's immediate family, so you can start adding people. I recommend working from Compare screens, anyway, because working methodically to add close relations helps preserve the linkages between people in your tree.
Now I have rejected all the suggested matches from the day before yesterday one more time and the Add button is there again!. I think it is very annoying if you should reject the suggested matches every time.

It is my first time here, so maybe I will learn.

Thank you very much Ellen
You shouldn't have to reject the same match more than once. Maybe something went wrong when you completed your review the day before yesterday. Glad it's working for you now!

The current Gedcompare process is still very new (note the Beta label on it) so none of us is super-familiar with its behavior, and there may still be features that don't work reliably.
I managed to add a few today. Will try again tomorrow evening. I find Wikitree the best online tree I have seen so far, so I am trying hard not to lose my patience with the beta version :-)

Thank you for your support
Some people are stubborn to add, I found that you have to date of death as uncertain, even if it is blank, or the person will not add. Sometimes a new "suggested" pops up and you have to search very carefully for it for the "add" buttons to return.
If new suggested matches are appearing, it's probably because you clicked on the REFRESH button at the bottom of the page. You don't need to hit that button to get the GEDCOMpare data to refresh; pages refresh automatically.  That button exists to search for additional suggested matches.
