# Titlingpage use in memoir class

Why the titlingpage command do not function as the titlepage command? is not the same command but for the memoir class?

\documentclass[a4paper]{memoir}

\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}
\begin{titlingpage}
\lipsum[1-5]
\end{titlingpage}
\end{document}

This is covered explicitly in the memoir documentation (chapter Four: Titles, p 61):

When one of the standard classes is used with the titlepage option, \maketitle puts the title elements on an unnumbered page and then starts a new page numbered page 1. The standard classes also provide a titlepage environment which starts a new unnumbered page and at the end starts a new page numbered 1. You are entirely responsible for specifying exactly what and where is to go on this title page. If \maketitle is used within the titlepage environment it will start yet another page.

This class provides neither a titlepage option nor a titlepage environment; instead it provides the titlingpage environment which falls between the titlepage option and the titlepage environment. Within the titlingpage environment you can use the \maketitle command, and any others you wish. The titlingpage pagestyle is used, and at the end it starts another ordinary page numbered one. The titlingpage pagestyle is initially defined to be the same as the empty pagestyle.

Sorry, i have just now solved:

\documentclass[a4paper]{memoir}

\usepackage{chngpage,calc}

\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}
\begin{titlingpage}
\changetext{}{}{}{((\paperwidth - \textwidth) / 2) - \oddsidemargin - \hoffset - 1in}{}
\lipsum[1-5]
\end{titlingpage}
\end{document}
