# Remove the list of dividers in the first row of the title slide (beamer)

I would like to remove the list of the sections that shows up at the top of the title slide, but I would like to keep it in the remaining slides. I know it's possible to do it, but I don't know how

\documentclass[10pt,english,usenames dvipsnames]{beamer}

\newcommand\makebeamertitle{\frame{\maketitle}}%
\AtBeginDocument{%
\let\origtableofcontents=\tableofcontents
\def\tableofcontents{\@ifnextchar[{\origtableofcontents}    {\gobbletableofcontents}}
\def\gobbletableofcontents#1{\origtableofcontents}
}

\PassOptionsToPackage{usenames,dvipsnames}{xcolor}
\usepackage[usenames,dvipsnames]{xcolor}

\date{\today}
\usepackage[draft]{pgf}
\usepackage{listings}

\useoutertheme[subsection=false]{miniframes}

\makeatother

\usepackage{babel}
\begin{document}

\title{Title}

\author[Author]{name}

\makebeamertitle

\AtBeginSubsection[]{%
\frame<beamer>{
\frametitle{Outline}
\tableofcontents[currentsection,currentsubsection]
}
}

\section{Introduction}
\begin{frame}{Slide 1}
In this section...
\end{frame}

\end{document}


If I comment out \useoutertheme[subsection=false]{miniframes} then I remove the list from all the slides, while I want to remove it only from the first slide.

You can remove the headline (and the - in your example non-existing - footline) by using the plain frame option.

• the correct way to pass options to xcolor in beamer is to use xcolor={usenames,dvipsnames} as class option. All you attempts to do this after the document class will have no effect

• no need to load the pgf package, beamer does this for you.

• the \makeatother does not have any effect at this position

• if you put \title{Title} \author[Author]{name} before \begin{document} it will be included in the meta data of the .pdf.
