# Chapter title without number

Now that I have turned numbering on, `\leftmark` shows chapter title with number in my header. like

1 ChapterTitle

How do I remove the number?

these are my settings

``````documentclass[12pt,a4paper,english,openany,oneside]{scrbook}
\cfoot{}
\ifoot{\rule{0pt}{\ht\strutbox+\dp\strutbox}\SomeChapterNameCommand} % want chapter name here
\ofoot{\rule{0pt}{\ht\strutbox+\dp\strutbox}\thepage}
``````

How exactly are you building your headers? Provide a minimal working code. –  Gonzalo Medina Aug 18 '11 at 15:22
No.. I only want to remove the chapter number from the footer text, not the chapter itself. –  yolo Aug 19 '11 at 11:22

In case of the KOMA-Script classes, the formatting of the chapter number in the headline is controlled by `\chaptermarkformat.` To get rid of the chapter number, you simply have to redefine `\chaptermarkformat` as:

``````\renewcommand*{\chaptermarkformat}{}
``````

this answer and \headmark works! –  yolo Aug 19 '11 at 12:18

Try redefining `\chaptermark`:

``````\renewcommand\chaptermark[1]{\markboth{#1}{}}
``````
