Is there a command like \thispagestyle in order to set in a beamer template the plain option (for example).

I need this in order to design a section page template were I would like to remove sidebar head/footline. Thus I would like to be able to say in the beamertemplate : this frame is plain.

Actually this is done for the title page but looking at the default theme I do not find how.

    Is the plain option passed to a given frame sufficient? Aug 25, 2014 at 13:03

    Yes I can do \frame[plain]{\sectionpage}. But, as the plain option has to be set to all \sectionpage it would be better to set the plain option into the beamertemplate.

Inspired by https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/323638/36296 you could automatcally remove the footline and headline.


\addtobeamertemplate{section page}{\thispagestyle{navigation@sectionpage}}{}
