Let's look at some definitions: \thanks within article.cls: \def\thanks#1{\footnotemark \protected@xdef\@thanks{\@thanks \protect\footnotetext[\the\c@footnote]{#1}}% } This macro sets a footnote mark - \footnotemark. Then it adds the footnote text to \@thanks using \protected@xdef\@thanks{\@thanks <new footnote text>}. \maketitle in ...

If you only wish to remove the \date-related entry in the title, then you can patch \@maketitle and remove the relevant content (using etoolbox): \documentclass{scrartcl} \usepackage{scrlayer-scrpage,etoolbox} \automark[subsection]{section} \pagestyle{scrheadings} \title{Something} \author{Some Body} \ofoot{\today} \usepackage{blindtext} \makeatletter ...

Just load geometry conditionally. Of course the documentation should make it clear that the package must be loaded after geometry, if this package is used. A test for this could be added. columbidaeTitle.sty % Copyright note: This package defines how titles should % be typeset at the columbidae University % Please check for updates ...

\href refers to a hyper reference that you want to include. In order to do so, you need to include \usepackage{hyperref} in your preamble. Note that there may be conflicts when using that package. If this occurs, load order may be important. Additionally, \href[<options>]{<URL>}{<text>} takes two mandatory arguments. The first would be a ...

The metadata are included in the document using the command \maketitle. Usually, it is the first thing after \begin{document}.

You can do that with the titling package: \documentclass[]{article} \title{Project Title} \date{2016-31-01} \author{Author Name} \usepackage[showframe]{geometry} \usepackage{titling} \renewcommand\maketitlehooka{\null\mbox{}\vfill} \renewcommand\maketitlehookd{\vfill\null} \begin{document} \begin{titlingpage} \maketitle \end{titlingpage} \end{document} ...

Whether the comma is used or not is a question of style. Both choices are acceptable. If you want to remove the comma, known as “Oxford comma”, just redefine \Authands: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{authblk} \renewcommand{\Authands}{ and } % comment the line to have the Oxford comma \begin{document} \title{Individual Spread Footing} ...

Note that scrpage2 is outdated. Its successor is scrlayer-scrpage. There you can define an own layer page style for the title page: \documentclass[a4paper,twoside,12pt,chapterprefix=false]{scrbook} \usepackage{graphicx} \usepackage{scrlayer-scrpage} \DeclareNewLayer[ background, head, addvoffset=\headsep, height=1.5cm, addheight=\dp\strutbox, ...

I guess that you want to have a real article, with titles and so on. So use the article class and then load tikz later. \documentclass{article} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage{verbatim} \usepackage{tikz} \usetikzlibrary{calc} \title{Matematisk modellering} \author{name here} \date{February 2016} \begin{document} \maketitle \section{Introduction} ...

As David implied "It all depends". Depending on the particular LaTeX class there is a hierarchy of headings. The book and report classes provide part, chapter, section, subsection, subsubsection, paragraph and subparagraph. The article class has all of these except for chapter, while the memoir class adds book at the top of the book and report class ...

I would use it this way: \documentclass{article} \usepackage[a6paper]{geometry}%% only for demo \usepackage{hyperref} \title{Here is a title} \author{A Author\thanks{\url{abc@de}} \and B Author\thanks{\url{def.de}}} \date{November 2015} \begin{document} \maketitle \end{document}

Here's a first attempt. Not sure if I missed something, though. For the first question, the easiest way is to suppress the page breaks between the title and the abstract. For the second question, I think that's fixed with the \mainmatter command, which starts numbering chapters, changes page numbering to Arabic, etc. \documentclass[letterpaper, 11pt, ...

Perhaps this might work: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{lipsum} \usepackage{fancyhdr} \fancyhf{} \fancyfoot[L]{\today\ -Page \thepage} \pagestyle{fancy} \renewcommand{\headrulewidth}{0pt} \author{Me} \title{Foo} \date{\vspace{-5ex}} \begin{document} \maketitle \pagenumbering{gobble} \newpage \pagenumbering{arabic} \lipsum \end{document}

Your code between \begin{document} and first \newpage contains no non discardable element. Therefore a page is not created and background figure appears on the first real page which is due to titlepage environment. Please read egreg's excellent answer to Why \newpage needs at least \null to create a page? to understand it better and also to find the ...
