### How do I add multiple authors?

Great website and resources. However, I cannot figure out how to use this template for several authors. I put the names followed by commas and they “run out” of the pages instead of jumping to the next line. Help please?

Hi Juan,

The simplest solution is to manually split the author line which is too long into two. For example:

\textsc{Name1}\\\textsc{Name2}\thanks{A thank you or further information}\\[2mm]

Hi Guys,

I’m new to LaTeX but I’m getting the hang of it. I tried to copy/paste the “author” info section so that it included more than one author slot, but the program won’t recognize it and shows only one author. The copy/paste method has worked for me on my CV but, right now, I don’t know what to do with it. I’m writing an article jointly and wanted to see how it looked with both our names. I’d appreciate it if someone could help me out. I was using template number 2.

Thanks,
Chris

Hi Chris,

This is an example of the author line from this template with two authors: \textsc{John Smith}\thanks{A thank you or further information} ~and James Smith\\[2mm].

I still don't know how to do this, nothing works for me. Could someone please enter a dummy answer which I could just copy and paste?

Welcome, since i don't know which template is being asked about here, i am presenting the solution for the most generic, i.e. easiest to tweak template:
\documentclass{article}\title{Use two authors in a title}\author{Walzing Wombat\\University of Duckburg \and SalsaSnake\\Somewhere over the rainbow}\begin{document}\maketitle\end{document}

\and separates the two author blocks.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.
