# Putting the \title of a BeamerClass presentation in a \block

I'm using a hand made beamer theme that uses the corporate identity standards of my university. However, the \title text on the \titlepage is not set in a \block environment as it is, e.g., in the Darmstadt theme.

Is there a LaTeX command that actually toggles this feature on or off? If yes, is there a way to change the look of the \block environment of the \title without affecting the remaining \block environments on non-title-page slides?

\documentclass[handout]{beamer} % handout
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usetheme{upb}
\setbeamercovered{transparent}
\usepackage{ragged2e} % besseren Umbruch
\usepackage{booktabs} % spezielle Tabellen zulassen
\usepackage{textpos}
\title{Title}
\subtitle{Subtitle}
\author{phx}
\begin{document}
\frame{\titlepage}
\end{document}


The theme upd is available here (zip-file)

-

Please provide a full minimal example. Based on the information that you wish a style like Darmstard you use the definition of Darmstadt:

\setbeamercolor*{title}{use=structure,fg=white,bg=structure.fg}


Full example without the unknown theme upd

\documentclass[handout]{beamer} % handout
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
%\usetheme{upb}
\setbeamerfont{block title}{size={}}
\setbeamercovered{transparent}
\usepackage{ragged2e} % besseren Umbruch
\usepackage{booktabs} % spezielle Tabellen zulassen
\usepackage{textpos}
\setbeamercolor*{title}{use=structure,fg=white,bg=structure.fg,}

\title{Title}
\subtitle{Subtitle}
\author{phx}
\begin{document}
\frame{\titlepage}
\end{document}


Result with the usage of the theme upd:

@phx: I downloaded the theme and it works as expected. –  Marco Daniel Sep 25 '11 at 8:15
This works just fine. Thank you very much. –  phx Sep 25 '11 at 8:24
This works fine. The only problem is now that the frame titles on the subsequent slides are white and therefore invisible. –  phx Sep 25 '11 at 8:30
@phx: I edited my post. I changed titlelike to title –  Marco Daniel Sep 25 '11 at 8:42
Ok, this actually does the trick setting the frame title color back to blue \setbeamercolor{frametitle}{fg=upbblue,bg=structure.fg} –  phx Sep 25 '11 at 8:43
