Hi Luke,

Another (quick) fix given what you already have, is to renew the maketitle command to be empty:

#+LATEX_HEADER: \renewcommand{\maketitle}{}

Then after this you could put your #+begin_latex ... #+end_latex block to generate the page.  Obviously, this works only for the current =org-mode= file, and Tom's suggestion of creating your own latex class would be better in the long run.

I have successfully created a custom title page which I have used to
replace the default version created by org-mode.
Per http://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-latex-export.html
"11.2 Titles and Title Page Layout".

However my title page contains the document title, date and version number.
I would rather not have to create a separate "custom-title.tex"
for each document that I create.

Can I specify the Title etc. in org-mode in such a way that it can be
included in the custom Title page?

I have tried moving "custom-title.tex" into org-mode sandwiched
between #+BEGIN_latex / #+END_latex commands, but this does not put
the title on the first page.

I have included a blank



#+OPTIONS: toc:nil

but this still generates an empty page before my custom title page.


Aloha Luke,

IIUC, you would like to have a custom title page that picks up the title, author, date, etc. from the Org-mode file.

One way to do this is to keep the LaTeX variables for title, author, date, etc. in your new \maketitle, then put it in a new LaTeX class file that can be registered with Org-mode.

I have this in my custom class file:

  \let \footnote \thanks
    \vskip 3em%
    {\LARGE address@hidden \par}%
    \vskip 1.5em%
      \lineskip .5em%
    \vskip 1em%
    {\large address@hidden
  \vskip 1.5em}

address@hidden,address@hidden,address@hidden's #+TITLE:, etc.
