Linking Family Search profile to Wiki Profile?

I've read what was suggested by someone in the past, but see no place on the family search page to enable the link other than a long http which looks terrible. Could someone please show me an actual open profile that has accomplished this so that I can learn myself and do it for Arthur Clayron Conner and others?  I have opened the account there and worked a little bit on this family yesterday to see my way around. Don't like it a lot and find lots of errors, but I can see how it would be useful sometimes.

This page  https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:FamilySearch_Connections

tells about the process, and in the first sentence of the first  section, click on the word "app" and it will open page to log into both accounts and begin connection the profiles

The app will suggest possible matches on the FamilySearch Tree

Thank you. I tried it with several people. They sure make it as difficult as possible. When doing multiple people you have to keep signing in again and again. There's no way to scroll to either a letter of the alphabet or a name. However, I do think I got it linked. Funny, all they had was verbatim the profile I did on Wiki.

I use this direct link, and its quite easy: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Special:EditFamilySearch

I have not bothered to learn what it takes to go the other direction -- putting a link back to WikiTree from a FamilySearch profile.
