\def\ps at mystyle{\let\@oddhead\@empty\let\@evenhead\@empty
     \hfill\textcolor{red}{\bf No.~\thepage}\hfill

\ps at mystyle


This is  Slide No. \theslide.\\
\color{blue}\large Slide overlay No. \theslideoverlay.\\

\slidefoot{My first Slide}{Troy Goodson}


This is  Slide No. \theslide.\\
\color{blue}\large Slide overlay No. \theslideoverlay.\\

\slidefoot{My Subsequent Slide}{Troy Goodson}
