Could anyone tell me why the date is not being shown in the title of my document. The document class is proc. If I remove \date{\today} my title moves down a return, but no date is displayed when I leave it in.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

This may be due to the definition of \maketitle not containing date. So, you might want to check out where you have \def\@maketitle (it may be in your style file/document class). After finding the definition, you can insert date into it.

The proc document class doesn’t typeset the date in \maketitle:

  \vbox to 2.25in{%
    {\LARGE \@title \par}
    \vskip 2em
    {\large \begin{tabular}[t]{c}\@author \end{tabular}\par}

Contrast it with the article document class:

  \vskip 2em%
  \let \footnote \thanks
    {\LARGE \@title \par}%
    \vskip 1.5em%
      \lineskip .5em%
    \vskip 1em%
    {\large \@date}%
  \vskip 1.5em}
