I found this post in the forums, and I want to do exactly the same but for moderncv's "classic" style.

I am pretty new to LaTeX and all the maketitle thing makes me dizzy, I tried to understand it a little but I didn't achieve much.

How would you do that?

My answer there is valid for any style. In short, use something like


in you preamble for the page margins, and put


right after \maketitle.

  • as I already had the geometry package, \vspace*{-5mm} was enough for me, even did \vspace*{-15mm}
