# How to get default titlepage with extra pdf-frontpage?

I want to have normal LaTeX frontpage, then my University's frontpage and then normal content.

My tex

\documentclass[twocolumn]{revtex4-1} % use prl for onepage
\usepackage{pdfpages}
\usepackage{amsmath, amsfonts, amssymb, textcomp}
\usepackage[T4, OT1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{newunicodechar}
\usepackage{multirow}

\begin{document}
\title{La la la}
\author{Masi}

\maketitle
\begin{titlepage}
\begin{flushright} \large
\emph{Supervisor:} \\
Dr.~Mark \textsc{Brown}
\end{flushright}

% Bottom of the page
{\large \today}
\end{titlepage}

\clearpage
\includepdf[pages={1}]{abstract_1.pdf}
\clearpage

Content here la la la

\end{document}


I get

So problems are the wrong looking frontpage and the overflow of the text of the frontpage to the next page. It should be normal LaTeX one with big title in the center of the page and below it texts.

The texts which I have now in \begin{titlepage} ... \end{titlepage} goes on the top of the pdf-page which is wrong.

How can you have the default LaTeX frontpage?

Why is the content being overflown on the top of the pdf-page?

You can simply put \maketitle inside the titlepage environment to obtain what you want:

Code (I've also added a \vfill before \today assuming that you want it at the bottom of the page):

\documentclass[twocolumn]{revtex4-1} % use prl for onepage
\usepackage{pdfpages}
\usepackage{amsmath, amsfonts, amssymb, textcomp}
\usepackage[T4, OT1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{newunicodechar}
\usepackage{multirow}

\begin{document}
\title{La la la}
\author{Masi}

\begin{titlepage}
\maketitle
\begin{flushright} \large
\emph{Supervisor:} \\
Dr.~Mark \textsc{Brown}
\end{flushright}

% Bottom of the page
\vfill
{\large \today}
\end{titlepage}

\clearpage
\includepdf[pages={1}]{abstract_1.pdf}
\clearpage

Content here la la la

\end{document}

• Thank you for your answer! I extended my problem here: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/148007/… I want also Big title in the center of the page. Do you know how to achieve it? – Léo Léopold Hertz 준영 Dec 2 '13 at 12:28
• @Masi Do you mean something like \title{\Huge{La la la}}? – karlkoeller Dec 2 '13 at 12:35
• It is better, but I think there exists default titlepage in Latex where you have title in the very center of the page. I do not remember how to get it. – Léo Léopold Hertz 준영 Dec 2 '13 at 12:40
• \maketitle inside a titlepage environment? This is a bad example for newbies ;-) – Johannes_B May 28 '17 at 7:23
