# turn off frame number in certain slides using the beamer package

I'm preparing a presentation and I would like to have transition slides without any noise, so I want to remove even the frame number (which I need for non-transition slides).

I modified the footer of the slides such that I insert the frame number instead of the page number:

\setbeamertemplate{footline}{%


How can I turn off the frame number in these transitions slides.

The full MWE is as follows.

\documentclass[xcolor=dvipsnames, fleqn, usenames, table]{beamer}

\setbeamercovered{invisible}

\mode<presentation> {

\usetheme{default}

\setbeamertemplate{footline}{%
}

% comment to show navigation bar

\usepackage{color}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
\lipsum[2]
\end{frame}

% transition slide
\begin{frame}
{\huge
\begin{center}
{\color{blue} Transition}
\end{center}
}
\end{frame}

\begin{frame}
\lipsum[2]
\end{frame}

\end{document}

• You can use \begin{frame}[plain] for those transition slides. – user11232 Apr 15 '15 at 8:42
• Yes, but then the frame number gets increased too. – aaragon Apr 15 '15 at 8:54
• Add \addtocounter{framenumber}{-1} after every transition frame – Ignasi Apr 15 '15 at 9:05
• That solved it. – aaragon Apr 15 '15 at 9:17
• Or use '\begin{frame}[noframenumbering]{My Title} \end{frame}' to get unnumered slides – user36296 Apr 15 '15 at 9:41

I also had a custom footers and using a combination of both plain and noframenumbering worked for me. This removes any footnotes and does not increase the frame increment.

\documentclass[]{beamer}
% Custom numbering for the footline
\setbeamertemplate{footline}{%
\raisebox{5pt}{%
\makebox[\paperwidth]{%
\hfill\makebox[10pt]{%
