How to not generate a title page in pandoc markdown

I don’t want to generate a title page. My uni gave me a title page. I could merge it with the pandoc PDF afterwards.

How do I make the default title page disappear?

I tried the following:

Get the current template
pandoc -D markdown > md.template

The new template file contains:







Now I deleted this part to not have a title page:



Then I run pandoc --template md.template -V breakurl -V hyphens=URL --pdf-engine=xelatex -o out.pdf and get this error:

Error producing PDF.
! Undefined control sequence.
l.5 hypertarget

What am I doing wrong? Isn’t it supposed to work like this? Is there an easier method to achieve this?

The trick is to get the template in latex format with pandoc -D latex > latex.template.

Then I removed the lines:


To use the template I did pandoc --template latex.template -V breakurl -V hyphens=URL --pdf-engine=xelatex -o out.pdf
