Beamer displays page number of the form: page number/ total page at the end of the slide. This page number increases every time I use the pause command. Is there a way to make all the pages creating by pause from a single frame to have the same page number. I just don't want to discourage the listeners with too many slides. Thanks.

======== Update =======
Thanks for the comment, here is a minimal working example, I would like to have 2 pages with the same numbering 1/1 instead of 1/2 and 2/2:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{Warsaw}
\setbeamertemplate{navigation symbols}{}    

\begin{document}

\setbeamertemplate{footline}[page number]{}

\begin{frame}\frametitle{My frame}
First question?
\begin{itemize}
  \item first item
  \item second item
\end{itemize} \pause

Second question?
\begin{itemize}
  \item first item
  \item second item
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}

\end{document}

    Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – user31729 Jul 12 '14 at 18:08

Use frame number instead page number in

\setbeamertemplate{footline}[frame number]{}

enter image description here

Code:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{Warsaw}
\setbeamertemplate{navigation symbols}{}
\setbeamertemplate{footline}[frame number]{}

\begin{document}
\begin{frame}\frametitle{My frame}
  First question?
  \begin{itemize}
    \item first item
    \item second item
  \end{itemize} \pause 

  Second question?
  \begin{itemize}
    \item first item
    \item second item
  \end{itemize}
\end{frame}
\end{document}

    If you are customizing your theme and end up using \insertpagenumber then as @esdd suggests you need to change that to \insertframenumber. – banbh Apr 10 '17 at 14:39
