How do I put the title of my presentation in a block, in Boadilla Theme? The first few lines of my presentation looks like:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{Boadilla}
\title{Equivalent forms of LUB Property}
\author{Saikat Goswami}

\institute
{
  \inst{Department of Mathematics} 
  Ramakrishna Mission Vidyamandira 
  Belur Math 
  [email protected]
}

\date{\today} 
\begin{document}

  • What exactly does " put the title of my presentation in a block" mean here? Also, the title of your question mentions tht title of an article, while the question itself refers to the title of a presentations. You tagged your question using beamerarticle, but use beamer in your code example. Please clarify. What is \inst supposed to do here?

  • Sorry, I have corrected my post now. What I want is to put the title of my presentation inside a blue box.

  • I don't know if I have correctly used "\inst" or not. But I used it because it made the font-size of "Department of Mathematics" relatively smaller than the size of "Ramakrishna Mission Vidyamandira". That is the reason I used it.

  • Depending on hoy dark the blue color shuld be, you could use \setbeamercolor{title}{parent=author in head/foot} or \setbeamercolor{title}{parent=date in head/foot}. (I'll add an answer later.)

  • @leandriis: I am using Beamer for the first time. So I don't know anything about it. I am learning. Your guidance will be very helpful. Thank you.

You could add \setbeamercolor{title}{...} to the preamble of your document in order to add a colored box with rounded corners and a drop shadow around the title on your title frame. Depending on the shade of blue you want to get, for example one of the three shades already present in the footer, you could use \setbeamercolor{title}{parent=author in head/foot} or one of the other two versions shown in the following MWE:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{Boadilla}
\title{Equivalent forms of LUB Property}
\author{Saikat Goswami}

\institute[]
{
  Department of Mathematics
   
  Ramakrishna Mission Vidyamandira
   
  Belur Math 
  
  [email protected]
}

\date{\today} 

\setbeamercolor{title}{parent=author in head/foot}
%\setbeamercolor{title}{parent=title in head/foot}
%\setbeamercolor{title}{parent=date in head/foot}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
\maketitle
\end{frame}

\end{document}

The three versions will result in the following outputs:

Please note that I also slightly altered the argument(s) of the \institute command in comparison to your original code. I added [] in order to prevent the institute from showing in the footer in which it would partially be hidden by the "title" field. I also added blank lines to make sure, the 4 individual lines in the code are also shown in 4 lines in the resulting pdf file. Lastly, I also removed the \inst command, since it is usually used for multiple authors with different affiliations.
