# Creating acknowledgements page like abstract has same page number

I am using hyperref and the report document class.

To create an acknowledgements page that looks like the abstract I have

\documentclass[a4paper, 11pt]{report}

\usepackage{hyperref}
\title{My Title}
\author{Matt}

\begin{document}
\pagenumbering{Alph}
\maketitle

\phantomsection
\begin{abstract}
an abstract
\end{abstract}

\newpage
\phantomsection
\renewcommand{\abstractname}{Acknowledgements}

\begin{abstract}
I would like to thank blablabla
\end{abstract}

\end{document}


But in my table of contents it labels the abstract and acknowledgements page with the same page number, (both page i)

How can I make these "abstracts" be treated as separate pages?

Add the option notitlepage to the document class:

\documentclass[notitlepage]{report}


and then rewrite the code you've posted as

\pagenumbering{Alph}
\maketitle\thispagestyle{empty}

\newpage
\setcounter{page}{1}
\phantomsection
\begin{abstract}
an abstract
\end{abstract}

\newpage
\phantomsection
\renewcommand{\abstractname}{Acknowledgements}

\begin{abstract}
I would like to thank blablabla
\end{abstract}


## EDIT

\documentclass[a4paper,11pt,notitlepage]{report}

\usepackage{hyperref}
\title{My Title}
\author{Matt}

\begin{document}
\pagenumbering{Alph}
\maketitle\thispagestyle{empty}

\newpage
\null\vfill
\setcounter{page}{1}
\phantomsection
\begin{abstract}
an abstract
\end{abstract}
\vskip4cm\vfill

\newpage
\null\vfill
\phantomsection
\renewcommand{\abstractname}{Acknowledgements}
\begin{abstract}
I would like to thank blablabla
\end{abstract}
\vskip4cm\vfill

\newpage
\phantomsection

Note that I've added \vskip4cm for a matter of aesthetics, you can reduce it or change it to \null.
• Your MWE lacks the preamble and other things you might have at the beginning of the document, so I've tried to guess a bit... Do you mean that you want the abstract in the title page? – karlkoeller Jul 8 '13 at 13:23
