In my presentation with LaTeX slides the author name appears in the bottom line of every slide. Is there a way, to disable the appearance of the name in the bottom line, whereas I want to put the names as

\author{...}

so that it appears on the title page?

So to ask it in another way: is there a command to just disable the output of the author name in the bottom line?


Preamble:

\documentclass[hyperref={pdfpagelabels=false}]{beamer}
\usepackage{verbatim}
\usepackage{lmodern}
\title{....}
\author{....}
\date{\today}
\setbeamertemplate{navigation symbols}{}
\usepackage{beamerthemeshadow}
\beamersetuncovermixins{\opaqueness<1>{25}}{\opaqueness<2->{15}}
\begin{document}

Welcome to TeX.SE. It is always best to compose a fully compilable MWE that illustrates the problem including the \documentclass and the appropriate packages so that those trying to help don't have to recreate it. This will also serve as a test case and ensure that the solution actually works for you. –  Peter Grill Jun 2 '12 at 6:47

You need to be more specific. "LaTeX slides" doesn't mean much on a LaTeX website. All slides here are LaTeX slides ;-) (Except such which are made with ConTeXt or plain-TeX, of course). Please tell use which class (e.g. beamer) and which style/theme you are using. Posting a full minimal working example (MWE) which shows your preamble and an example slide would be even better. –  Martin Scharrer Jun 2 '12 at 7:57

So that is my preamble - I want to put my name into the author bracket, but I don't want it to appear in the bottomline –  maad Jun 2 '12 at 12:40

If you perhaps are using the beamer class you can adopt this approach:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage{lmodern}

\usetheme{CambridgeUS}
\title{My title}
\institute{My institute}
\author[]{Made by:\\Author name} %<= used the short author name [] for the footline: leave it blank to not displayed

\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
\titlepage
\end{frame}

\begin{frame}{Title}
example text
\end{frame}
\end{document}

which gives you two frames: in the titlepage, the author will be displayed while in the rest of the presentation no.

EDIT

Since you reported in a comment your preamble I can edit my answer. Some remarks on the preamble: I think you can avoid to say \usepackage{verbatim} (in my example I will insert an example of text inside the verbatim environment without loading the package) and instead of customizing your theme with \usepackage{beamerthemeshadow} you can select themes with \usetheme (for a detailed list, see the Beamer Theme Matrix).

To remove the author, the approach is the same as explained before.

Here is my code:

\documentclass[hyperref={pdfpagelabels=false}]{beamer} 
\usepackage{lmodern}

\setbeamertemplate{navigation symbols}{}
\usetheme{Warsaw}
\setbeamertemplate{headline}{} %<= to suppress the headline otherwise section and subsection will be displayed in the navigation bar
\beamersetuncovermixins{\opaqueness<1>{25}}{\opaqueness<2->{15}} 

\title{My title}
\institute{My institute}
\author[]{Author name} %<= used the short author name [] for the footline
\date{\today}

\begin{document}
\begin{frame}[plain]
\titlepage
\end{frame}

\begin{frame}[fragile]{Title}
\begin{verbatim}
example of text in verbatim environment
\end{verbatim}
\end{frame}
\end{document}

The output are the following two frames:
