The LINK at the top of the Learn More page: "Access the records: United States Census, 1940"  returns to the wrong collection home page ... half the time ...
 +
There are TWO US Census 1940 collection homepages ...
 +
1. https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/2000219
 +
and
 +
2. https://familysearch.org/1940census
 +
Both collection homepages go to ONE Learn More ... but the Learn more only redirects back to the first:  https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/2000219
 +
Engineering is updating the second ... so maybe https://familysearch.org/1940census is the preferred redirect ???
 +
PLEASE figure this one out because the two collection homepages for 1940 Census are very different
