# Shifting the title page to the middle of the presentation in Beamer

Is it possible to put the title slide to somewhere in the middle of the presentation when I create my presentation with Beamer? That is, suppose I want to show a couple of slides in the very beginning of my presentation, and after these slides I want to show the title slide (i.e., the slide that includes the title, authors and etc.). I've seen a post where some nice people discussed on creating sections in the presentation, but this is not exactly what I'm looking for. Thanks very much in advance.

• Welcome to TeX.SE! beamer comes with \againframe, which allows you to repeat a given frame. So you may just use that to repeat the title page. – user121799 Aug 27 '18 at 2:12
• Thanks @marmot for the quick answer, and also for welcoming me. I'll check \againframe, that looks promising. One thing I need to check, I don't want to repeat the title page. I want to use only one frame for title page, but I want to put this frame to somewhere around 3rd slide. Thanks again. – Ozan C. Aug 27 '18 at 2:22
• Isn't the title page generated by something like \begin{frame}[plain] \titlepage \end{frame}? If so, can't you just move that frame? If this does not work, you may want to post an MWE, i.e. a little document that shows what you are doing. – user121799 Aug 27 '18 at 2:29
• I didn't cover the title page with \begin{frame} and \end{frame}. But, anyhow, I just solved the problem, and posted an answer below. Thanks again for your help. – Ozan C. Aug 27 '18 at 2:36

As it turns out, it is pretty straightforward to solve this problem. What I needed to solve this problem was just moving \maketitle command into the middle where I want to show the title page. I put all the information that I want to use in the title (such as the authors) with the proper commands before \begin{document}, and then I moved \maketitle into the middle which solved the problem.

I decided by creating a separate .tex file for the first page and including it in the middle of the presentation with the \include command. Follow mwe:

Main file:

\documentclass[10pt, a4paper, serif]{beamer}

\title[]{Test I}
\subtitle[]{}
\author[Alexandre Loures]{Alexandre Loures}
\institute{}
\date{}

\begin{document}

\maketitle

\section{}

\begin{frame}

\frametitle{}{\

test I

}

\end{frame}

\include{title} % <= here comes the file created the part

\begin{frame}

\frametitle{}{\

test II

}

\end{frame}

\end{document}


The other file created the part (which I called title.tex) is as follows:

\section{}

\title[]{Test II}
\subtitle[]{}
%\author[]{}
\institute{}
\date{}

\maketitle


Result:
