# Abstract and titlepage

I compile my code and the abstract shows up before the titlepage, but I want it after the title page.

\documentclass[12pt, oneside]{report}

\usepackage[margin=1in]{geometry}
\geometry{letterpaper}

\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{setspace}
\usepackage{indentfirst}
\usepackage{amssymb}

\title{Thesis}
\author{by Me}
\date{April 15th, 2013}

\begin{document}

\begin{abstract}

stuff and nonsense

\end{abstract}

\maketitle

\tableofcontents

Just call \maketitle before environment abstract and after \begin{document}. – Kurt Feb 26 '13 at 5:20
Thank you so much for your answer!! It really helped and it compiled just the way I wanted it to! Much appreciated!! :) – izzy Feb 26 '13 at 16:31

The following code seems to work well. In addition to Kurt's comment, \begin{document} should be before the title.

\documentclass[12pt, oneside]{report}

\usepackage[margin=1in]{geometry}
\geometry{letterpaper}

\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{setspace}
\usepackage{indentfirst}
\usepackage{amssymb}

\begin{document}

\title{Thesis}
\author{by Me}
\date{April 15th, 2013}

\maketitle

\begin{abstract}

stuff and nonsense

\end{abstract}

\tableofcontents

\end{document}

Regarding the placement of \title, see question: Should I place \title, \author, \date in the preamble or after \begin{document}?. – hpesoj626 Feb 26 '13 at 8:57
Oh my god!! Thank y'all so much!! I kept fiddling with it, but couldn't get it to work. I can't believe it's as simple as that. Much appreciated!! – izzy Feb 26 '13 at 16:30
