# How remove title page's set date

how to delete the surrounded date without deleting the footer's date?

I've tried `\date{}`, but this would remove the footer's date too.

@Sigur, that've worked, thank you. Do you want to put it as an answer or do I close the topic? –  dgs May 2 at 22:08

Since the footer makes use of the shorter version of the date you can use an option to pass it to the footer.

`````` \date[\today]{}
``````

Then the empty mandatory argument is used for the title page and the optional argument is used for headers/footers.

The same applies to `\title[]{}`, `\author[]{}`, `\institution[]{}` and so on.

Thanx, to remove date from title \date{} worked perfectly well.
