I am using the following code:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usetheme{Singapore}
\begin{document}
    \section{Section 1}
    \begin{frame}
        Slide 1
    \end{frame}
    \begin{frame}
        Slide 2
    \end{frame}
    \section[]{}
    \begin{frame}
        Slide with no section!
    \end{frame}
\end{document}

In the third slide, I have no idea why there is a black bullet in the navigation bar; also if you click on the first bullet, it takes you to the third slide, which is wrong. Any reason why?

    Don't use the section command with empty short argument. Compare \section[]{} with \section[foo]{faa}. – Sigur Jan 17 at 21:45
  • It does not work :) – mmg Jan 17 at 21:48
  • Maybe \frametitle{} could help you. – Sigur Jan 17 at 21:48
  • It does not do exactly what I want. I use multiple title page like here: {tex.stackexchange.com/questions/147392/…} – mmg Jan 17 at 21:49
  • So, maybe starat another \part{} to clean the navigations (I hope). – Sigur Jan 17 at 21:50

(solution from this answer)

Is this what you want?

enter image description here

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{Singapore}
\title{A main title}
\author{Main Author}

\begin{document}
{
\setbeamertemplate{headline}{\pgfuseshading{beamer@headfade}}
\setbeamertemplate{footline}{}
\frame{\titlepage}
}

\section{Section 1}

\begin{frame}
  Slide 1
\end{frame}

\begin{frame}
  Slide 2
\end{frame}

%% second part

\title{A secondary title}
\author{Main Author and others}

{
\setbeamertemplate{headline}{\pgfuseshading{beamer@headfade}}
\setbeamertemplate{footline}{}
\frame{\titlepage}
}

\section{Section 2}

\begin{frame}
  Slide 1
\end{frame}

\begin{frame}
  Slide 2
\end{frame}

\end{document}

If you want the navigation for the second part starting at left, simply start a new part after the second author/title data:

\title{A secondary title}
\author{Main Author and others}
\part{}
{
\setbeamertemplate{headline}{\pgfuseshading{beamer@headfade}}
\setbeamertemplate{footline}{}
\frame{\titlepage}
}

  • It is a good answer, but not exactly what I was asking for. I wanted the navigation bar to be there, while all the bullets are empty. +1 for the use of \part. – mmg Jan 19 at 2:06
