I took a sample from my colleague to create a math poster but it is not running in texmaker. Line 216 shows various errors. Can some one check what I am missing here. I have never created a poster in latex before. Thanks!

Here is the code. Texmaker shows error in line 94 , the one with "\endframe"

The code was missing either a \begin{itemize}. See comment in code at ~line no. 64

  • can you tell me why it doesnt show any title although it is in the code. Apr 5, 2016 at 7:31
  • @BhaskarVashishth you need to call \maketitle after \begin{document}.

  • but that converts it in two pages. First page is title page. I want title at the top, all in one page. It is a one page poster Apr 5, 2016 at 7:59
  • @BhaskarVashishth that exceeds the scope of this question. see if the answer in tex.stackexchange.com/a/109454/100482 does help you further
