    I have been trying to add a trailer to my YT channel. But, I have followed the directions multiple times on my real channel with no luck. I never get the “For returning subscribers”, “For new visitors”. I do get the menu for Home…..About. Below where the returning or new section is suppose to be, it just has a button that say “Add a section”.

    I decided to create a new channel just before I wrote this and it does exactly the same thing.

    Ideas?
