Trailer link on regular (non-Pro) title page

I posted an external link to the trailer for our film.  Followed instructions carefully and the link appeared promptly on the film's IMDbPro page. https://pro.imdb.com/title/tt11310380/details

However, the link hasn't shown up on the "regular" title page which shows no External Links category at all, though that seems to be implied in the submission instructions.  Does this mean that external links cannot be posted on regular title pages, only on Pro title pages?  Or, if that's not what it means, then is anyone able to tell me how to add the link to the regular page; not just on the Pro page?  After all, we'd like non-pros to see the trailer, too.  

Thanks in advance, as always!

It's on normal site too: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt11310380/externalsites

"MORE -> External Sites" on top is the way to reach it. It's a weakness in IMDB design imo. It would be better if a button like "More links" next to "Official Sites" section exists.

Same happens when a title does not have Production company listed but has distributor, it just hides company section altogether in that case from main page.

@craig_huston For better visibility of your trailer, you can place it directly at the top of the title page on the regular site (and get a better placement on IMDbPro too) via IMDb Title Scorecard.  Please see https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/industry-professional/imdb-title-scorecard/GR6ELNEMQZADBQ2B

I had read about this procedure but decided against it, at least for the time being.  There is now a link to the trailer in the upper right-hand Official Sites box/button, plus the trailer itself is included on our official website which can be accessed further down the title page.  That's probably enough.  However, the producers and I will keep this option in mind, for sure.  Thanks very much for the suggestion and the link!
