# Change the color of the main title without redefining \maketitle

I'm looking for a way to change the color of the main title of a document without redefining the \maketitle. A Google search only yields how to systematically change the section titles that does not include the main title.

• what is your document class? what about \title{\textcolor{blue}{The title}}? – touhami Nov 13 '15 at 16:55
• Yes that worked thank you. I was thinking that there might be a \titlecolor definition or something. I was overthinking it. thanks. – Andrew Redd Nov 13 '15 at 17:27

Here is a solution

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{xcolor}
\title{\textcolor{blue}{The title}}
\author{Me}

\begin{document}
\maketitle
\end{document}


Update if ams class used

\documentclass{amsart}
\usepackage{xcolor}
\colorlet{BLUE}{blue}
\title{\textcolor{blue}{The title}}
\author{Me}

\begin{document}
\maketitle
\end{document}
