# Header and footer in the report class and how to hide the word “chapter”

I am trying to write a report class document, I numbering in the ToC for sections is not printing also how to hide or remove the word "chapter" for instance, my code is :

\documentclass[letter,titlepage,doublesided]{report}

\usepackage{xcolor}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\usepackage{lastpage}
\usepackage[margin=0.6in,bottom=0.8in, top=0.8in]{geometry}
\usepackage{titlesec}
\usepackage{url}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usepackage{fix-cm}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{pbox}
\usepackage{titletoc}

\newcommand\mybox[2][]{\tikz[overlay]\node[fill=blue!20,inner sep=2pt, anchor=text, rectangle, rounded corners=1mm,#1] {#2};\phantom{#2}}

\title{REPORT}
\author{\includegraphics[width=0.1\textwidth]{logo.png}}
\date{Revision 5}
\pagestyle{fancy}
\lfoot{\small\it{{xxx}}}
\cfoot{\small\it{{xxx}}}
\rfoot{\small\it{Page \thepage{} of \pageref{LastPage}}}
\renewcommand{\footrulewidth}{0.4pt}

\newcommand{\colorsection}[1]{%

\newcommand{\colorsubsection}[1]{%
\colorbox{gray!20}{\parbox{\dimexpr\textwidth-2\fboxsep}{\thesubsection\ #1}}}

\titleformat{\section}[block]
{\sffamily\huge}
{}
{0pt}
{\colorsection}
\titlespacing*{\section}{0pt}{\baselineskip}{\baselineskip}

\titleformat{\subsection}[block]
{\sffamily\Large}

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

\newcommand{\hdr}[1]{{\bf\huge{#1}}}

\begin{document}
\centering\Huge{REPORT}

\vspace{5em}

\cleardoublepage

\tableofcontents

\chapter{Scope}

\section{test}

\end{document}


I am not able to upload a picture but in the page 2, 3. I am not able to see the header and footer as it is in the Page 1. I want to remove the word chapter in Page 3.

Welcome to TeX.SX. A tip: If you indent lines by 4 spaces, then they're marked as a code sample. You can also highlight the code and click the "code" button ({}) or select your code and hit Ctrl+K. –  Jubobs Mar 8 '13 at 19:49
if you use \chapter*{...} the word "chapter" will be omitted. i'll leave the questions about headers/footers to someone else. –  barbara beeton Mar 8 '13 at 20:30
\renewcommand{\chaptername}{}? –  hpesoj626 Mar 8 '13 at 20:43

% For the desired chapter heading formatting
\titleformat{\chapter}
{\normalfont\Huge\bfseries}


myfancypage is set up as

\fancypagestyle{myfancypage}{
\fancyhf{}
\lfoot{\small\textit{xxx}}
\cfoot{\small\textit{xxx}}
\rfoot{\small\textit{Page \thepage{} of \pageref{LastPage}}}}


## References

I have also deleted some repeated lines in your code and added

\newpage
text!


to illustrate myfancypage

Also the doublesided option doesn't exist and it's twoside. –  egreg Mar 8 '13 at 23:32
@egreg Thanks for your eagle's eyes. I didn't see that. :) –  hpesoj626 Mar 9 '13 at 0:03
1. Your problem is that \pagestyle{fancy} sets the current page style to fancy and all subsequent page style modifications will apply to fancy and nothing else. But \chapter by default issues a \thispagestyle{plain}. What you could do is to redefine the plain style as well.
2. \large{\bf{\it{xxx}} does not do what you think it does. This should be written as {\large\bfseries\itshape xxx} or as {\large \textbf{\textit{xxx}}}.
3. Your example is far too long and filled with irrelevant stuff. This is an issue with how to use fancyhdr. Everything else in your code dump is just noise. http://www.minimalbeispiel.de/mini-en.html
