Beamer Footline

Postby mrdwustl on Mon Apr 12th, 2010

Hi.

I'm making slides in latex and want the footline to appear to have my name and the institution (rather than my name and the title). Is there an easy way to do this? Thanks.

Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\documentclass{beamer}[10]
\usepackage{pgf}
\usepackage{beamerthemesplit}
 
\definecolor{kugreen}{RGB}{50,93,61}
\definecolor{kugreenlys}{RGB}{132,158,139}
\definecolor{kugreenlyslys}{RGB}{173,190,177}
\definecolor{kugreenlyslyslys}{RGB}{214,223,216}
\setbeamercovered{transparent
}
\mode<presentation>
%\usetheme[numbers,totalnumber,compress,sidebarshades]{PaloAlto}
\setbeamertemplate{footline}[title]
 
  \usecolortheme[named=kugreen]{structure}
  \useinnertheme{circles}
  \usefonttheme[onlymath]{serif}
  \setbeamercovered{transparent}
  \setbeamertemplate{blocks
}[rounded][shadow=true]
   
%\logo{\includegraphics[width=1.5cm]{billeder/logo}}
\title{TITLE}
\author{NAME}
\institute{Department of Political Science \\ Washington University in St. Louis}
\date{\today}
\begin{document

Hi,

you have to set the footline beamer template; the following example code includes the necessary definitions:

Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\documentclass{beamer}[10]
\usepackage{beamerthemesplit}

\definecolor{kugreen}{RGB}{50,93,61}
\definecolor{kugreenlys}{RGB}{132,158,139}
\definecolor{kugreenlyslys}{RGB}{173,190,177}
\definecolor{kugreenlyslyslys}{RGB}{214,223,216}
\setbeamercovered{transparent}
\mode<presentation>

\setbeamertemplate{footline
}
{%
  \leavevmode%
  \hbox{\begin{beamercolorbox}[wd=.5\paperwidth,ht=2.5ex,dp=1.125ex,leftskip=.3cm plus1fill,rightskip=.3cm]{author in head/foot}%
    \usebeamerfont{author in head/foot}\insertshortauthor
  \end{beamercolorbox
}%
  \begin{beamercolorbox}[wd=.5\paperwidth,ht=2.5ex,dp=1.125ex,leftskip=.3cm,rightskip=.3cm plus1fil]{title in head/foot}%
    \usebeamerfont{title in head/foot}\insertshortinstitute
  \end{beamercolorbox}
}%
  \vskip0pt%
}

  \usecolortheme[named=kugreen]{structure}
  \useinnertheme{circles}
  \usefonttheme[onlymath]{serif}
  \setbeamercovered{transparent}
  \setbeamertemplate{blocks}[rounded][shadow=true]
   
\title{TITLE}
\author{NAME}
\institute[Short Institute name]{Department of Political Science -- Washington University in St. Louis}
\date{\today}
\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
Test
\end{frame}

\end{document
