1.13.1. Styling the title-page

The formatting of the content on the title page is defined by the following block-styles (note: for page-oriented output the title-page consists of a front- and back-side):
Style-IDDescription
header1 The formatting of the publication title.
title_back The formatting of the publication title on the back-side of the title-page (only applicable for page-oriented output, e.g. PDF).
subtitle The formatting of the publication's subtitle.
abstract The formatting of the abstract text.
author The formatting of a single author name.
authorgroup The formatting of the author names block.
authorgroup_back The formatting of the author names on the back-side of the title-page (only applicable for page-oriented output, e.g. PDF).
copyright The formatting of the copyright notice.
corpauthor The formatting of the corporation name.
corpauthor_back The formatting of the corporation name on the back-side of the title-page (only applicable for page-oriented output, e.g. PDF).
legalnotice The formatting of the legal notice.
othercredit The formatting of the credits.
pudate The formatting of the publication date.
releaseinfo The formatting of the release information.
titlepage The formatting of the complete title-page block (only applicable for HTML output).
The title-page information can be set in the publication configuration dialog (see 'Publication configuration' in the reference manual).
If one of the styles listed above does not yet exist, then a default formatting will be used to render the appropriate content on the title-page. You can overwrite the default formatting by creating block-styles with the ID values listed above. See 'Pre-defined styles' in the reference manual for a more detailed description of these styles.
Tipp: Use style variants if you want to format the title-page differently for different output formats. See 'Using style variants' in the reference manual for more information on using style variants.
Instead of defining the formatting of the title-page with the predefined block-styles listed above and the content defined in the publication-configuration, you can also create custom title pages. Custom title pages have free layout and content. When using custom title-pages, you define a content-node to be used as title-page. This way you can edit the title-page the same way as you edit any other content of the publication. See 'Publication configuration' in the reference manual for more information on defining custom title-pages.
