[Tex/LaTex] How to not count a slide in page number in beamer


I have slides 1, 2, 3 and I only want the page number in the slides to count slide 2 and 3. So on slide 2, the page number displays 1/2.

I followed exactly what suggested in Beamer: \nonumber equivalent for slides?
using the noframenumbering option. It does not do anything.

I tried to find out what you might mean, but unfortunately you do not provide an MWE. Even worse, my crystal ball got stolen. So I can only guess what you mean. I guess you are confusing frame number with page number. To see this consider the MWE

\setbeamertemplate{footline}[page number]{}
%\setbeamertemplate{footline}[frame number]{}
\begin{frame}[noframenumbering]{First frame}
\begin{frame}[t]{Second frame}
\begin{frame}[t]{Third frame}
\begin{frame}[noframenumbering]{Fouth frame}
\begin{frame}[t]{Fifth frame}

This seems to confirm what you're saying, but the catch is that I am showing the page number here. Indeed, if I activate \setbeamertemplate{footline}[frame number]{} instead, I get

Is this the phenomenon you're referring to?
