I am using the theme \usetheme{Goettingen}. When I use \begin{frame}[plain] \titlepage \end{frame}, the side bar disappears, but the contents are still in the same position and not centered.

Is it possible to keep a plain side bar without contents in this theme, or is it possible to center the contents, after removing the side bar?

You can center the title page like this:

\documentclass{beamer}

\usetheme{Goettingen}
\title{text}

\begin{document}
    
\begin{frame}[plain]
\hspace*{.5\beamersidebarwidth}\begin{minipage}{\textwidth}
    \titlepage
\end{minipage}
\end{frame} 
    
\end{document}

enter image description here

If you would like to keep an empty sidebar:

\documentclass{beamer}

\usetheme{Goettingen}
\title{text}


\begin{document}
    
\section{title}

{
\setbeamertemplate{sidebar right}{}
\begin{frame}
    \titlepage
\end{frame} 
}

\begin{frame}
content...
\end{frame}
    
\end{document}

  • I tried to run the first set of commands, but it is showing error. The second set of commands-to remove the contents and keep the side bar- it works.. Thank you.. Apr 18, 2023 at 18:32
  • @LEKSHMINAIRK.B. Is your tex distribution up-tp-date? The \beamersidebarwidth macro was introduced in beamer v3.65. If you have an older version, you will get an error Apr 18, 2023 at 18:36
