# How to edit the title page of the beamer?

I would like to edit the title page of the beamer presentation template in order display my name and my project supervisor's name in the title slide. Is this possible? Can it be achieved easily?

This can, of course, be done. Which theme are you using? –  Gonzalo Medina Jan 23 at 22:29
@GonzaloMedina I am using the theme CambridgeUS at the moment. –  Vesnog Jan 23 at 22:36

One possible solution follows. I adjusted some settings so that now you have a new command \supervisor which behaves analogously to \author and lets you introduce the supervisor's name below the author's name. The name will be preceded by the string "Supervisor: " which can be changed using \supervisortitle.

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{CambridgeUS}

\makeatletter
\let\insertsupervisor\relax
\newcommand\supervisortitle{Supervisor}
\mode<all>
{
\newcommand\supervisor[1]{\def\insertsupervisor{#1}}
\titlegraphic{}
}
\defbeamertemplate*{title page}{supdefault}[1][]
{
\vbox{}
\vfill
\begingroup
\centering
\begin{beamercolorbox}[sep=8pt,center,#1]{title}
\usebeamerfont{title}\inserttitle\par%
\ifx\insertsubtitle\@empty\relax%
\else%
\vskip0.25em%
{\usebeamerfont{subtitle}\usebeamercolor[fg]{subtitle}\insertsubtitle\par}%
\fi%
\end{beamercolorbox}%
\vskip1em\par
\begin{beamercolorbox}[sep=8pt,center,#1]{author}
\usebeamerfont{author}\insertauthor
\end{beamercolorbox}
\ifx\insertsupervisor\relax\relax\else
\begin{beamercolorbox}[sep=8pt,center,#1]{author}
\usebeamerfont{author}\supervisortitle:~\insertsupervisor
\end{beamercolorbox}\fi
\begin{beamercolorbox}[sep=8pt,center,#1]{institute}
\usebeamerfont{institute}\insertinstitute
\end{beamercolorbox}
\begin{beamercolorbox}[sep=8pt,center,#1]{date}
\usebeamerfont{date}\insertdate
\end{beamercolorbox}\vskip0.5em
{\usebeamercolor[fg]{titlegraphic}\inserttitlegraphic\par}
\endgroup
\vfill
}

\title{The Title}
\subtitle{The Subtitle}

@Gonzala Medina Thanks, I appreciate your effort. I will implement this in my presentation right away. –  Vesnog Jan 23 at 23:24
