# Removing frame number from title page (Warsaw theme)

I am working with Warsaw theme. I found a code in order to add frame numbering by "googling". As a minimal example:

\documentclass[table]{beamer}

\usetheme{Warsaw}

\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{color}

{%
\leavevmode%
\end{beamercolorbox}%
\end{beamercolorbox}}%
\vskip0pt%
}

\title{Linearized Model}
\subtitle{Results from Numerical Implementation}
\author[DA, GC]{\underline{First Author}, Second Author}
\date{\today}

\AtBeginSection[]
{
\begin{frame}
\frametitle{Presentation Outline}
\tableofcontents[currentsection]
\end{frame}
}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
\titlepage
\end{frame}

\section{Overview of VENU Model}
\begin{frame}
\frametitle{Motivations for the Modeling\ldots}
\begin{itemize}
\item BlaBla
\item BlaBla
\item BlaBla
\item BlaBla
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}

\begin{frame}
\frametitle{Original work; 2012}
\begin{itemize}
\pause \item BlaBla
\pause \item BlaBla
\pause \item BlaBla
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}

\end{document}


Frame numbering appears as desired. Questions: 1) What should I add in the preamble in order to avoid frame numbering of the title page (first page). The numbering should continue with 2 in the Presentation Outline.

2) What should I do if I want the numbering to starts from the Presentation Outline (that is, the title page is not counted at all in the total number of pages).

3) How I should modify above code in order to move the numbering in the right corner instead of the left one;

results in starting the numbering from 0 but still is not what I want.

• Actually I found the code here tex.stackexchange.com/questions/8179/… – Dimitris Oct 30 '15 at 12:20
• Hi. The first answer (the accepted one) seems to work with the Madrid theme, not the Warsaw. And the other workaround with adding [plain] modifies completely the title page. – Dimitris Oct 30 '15 at 12:42
• As I wrote above the \begin{frame}[plain] \titlepage \end{frame} modifies completely the title page. – Dimitris Oct 30 '15 at 12:47
• @dimitries Sorry, I did not read your comment properly – user36296 Oct 30 '15 at 12:49
• No problem. In fact, the proposed workaround disappears completely the footer graphics. – Dimitris Oct 30 '15 at 12:52

1) What should I add in the preamble in order to avoid frame numbering of the title page (first page). The numbering should continue with 2 in the Presentation Outline.

If you use

 \begin{frame}
\titlepage
\end{frame}


the number of the Outline is 2. In order to no print the frame numbers on the title frame, use either the [plain] option, which removes the footer or redefine the footer for the title page.

2) What should I do if I want the numbering to starts from the Presentation Outline (that is, the title page is not counted at all in the total number of pages).

This is exactly what the

\begin{frame}[noframenumbering]
\titlepage
\end{frame}


you mentioned in your question, does.

3) How I should modify above code in order to move the numbering in the right corner instead of the left one;

move the \insertframenumber\,/\,\inserttotalframenumber to the other side of the footer

Set a separate footline for the title page, after title page subtract 1 from framenumber:

\documentclass[table]{beamer}

\usetheme{Warsaw}

\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{color}

{%
\leavevmode%
\mbox{}\hfill\insertshortauthor
\end{beamercolorbox}%
\end{beamercolorbox}}%
\vskip0pt%
}

}

\begin{document}
{\setbeamertemplate{footline}
{%
\leavevmode%
\end{beamercolorbox}%
\end{beamercolorbox}}%
\vskip0pt%
}
\begin{frame}

\end{frame}

• Thank you very much for your great answer. It works as desired. Unfortunately I could not vote for both answers. – Dimitris Oct 30 '15 at 13:19
