I have too many references for a single slide (I am using beamer on Sharelatex) and while looking for a solution I bumped into this:

How can I split a beamer bibliography across two slides?

I tried and follow the suggestions given in the post but allowframebreaks does not work properly. In particular, I can compile and produce a pdf without getting errors, but what I see is a first empty slide (References), and a second (References II) slide overstuffed with my citations.

Can anyone give some help? I am not that expert in using beamer and I need to sort this out asap. Many thanks in advance.

Here is my code and the corresponding output:

 \usepackage[utf8] {inputenc}
 \usepackage[T1]  {fontenc}
 \usepackage[english] {babel}
 \usepackage{verbatim}%comment environment
  \algdef{SE}[DOWHILE]{Do}{DoWhile}{\algorithmicdo}[1]{\algorithmicwhile\ #1}

   \title[Computational intelligence optimisation\hspace{2em}]{An introduction to real world optimisation}
   \date{Academic year 2015-2016}

  \begin{frame}{NFLT}{bla bla bla?}
      \item \cite{bib:freelunches}.
      \item hyper-heuristics\footnote{for... \cite       {bib:Burke2010,bib:Ozcan2008}} \cite{polilunches}.
    \end{itemize},\cite{bib:Hooke-Jeeves1961}, \cite{bib:Caraffini2012PMS}

    Then send a MWE (minimal working example, a short, self containing document) which exhibits your problem ASAP ... In usual circumstances this, what you describe in question, shouldn't happen. – Zarko Jan 31 '16 at 19:11
  • Thanks Zarko, I have added code and output.. is that what you need? – Fabio Caraffini Jan 31 '16 at 20:30

    What is in package FabioSimpleStyle. Seems to be private package ... Without it all seems o.k. Unfortunately \bibliography{demo} not work in my LaTeX installation (MikTeX) ... – Zarko Jan 31 '16 at 20:46
  • I can not reproduce your problem. With one of mine .bib file and without your private FabioSimpleStyle work as expected. From picture of your slides I conclude, that you actually import your bibliography as picture, which can't be fir in one frame. Is this a case? – Zarko Jan 31 '16 at 21:25

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because a) can not be reproduced without unavailable custom style files and b) solved according to comments – samcarter is at topanswers.xyz Jul 15 '16 at 21:16
