# How can I get this header and footer?

In every pager header I want title, author left side and chapter name with indent and date on right side. I have been trying from long time. It's very important for my thesis. Please some one help me to solve this. Here is the MS Word representation:

[ Title ]  - [ Subtitle ]                                            1 Introduction
[Author’s name]                                                       2012-01-04

I edited the Alan's script a little..All i need is header and footer in Abstract, Acknowledgements and Introduction page also.. this is the edited script.

\documentclass{report}
\usepackage{titling}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\usepackage{lipsum} % for dummy text only

\makeatletter
% These commands follow the titling package format for titles
% They define user commands to format the subtitle
\newcommand\presubtitle[1]{\gdef\@presubtitle{#1}}
\newcommand\postsubtitle[1]{\gdef\@postsubtitle{#1}}
\newenvironment{alwayssingle}{%
\@restonecolfalse\if@twocolumn\@restonecoltrue\onecolumn
\else\newpage\fi}
{\if@restonecol\twocolumn\else\newpage\fi}
\newenvironment{acknowledgements}
{\pagestyle{empty}
\begin{alwayssingle}
\begin{center}
\vspace*{1.5cm}
\begin{flushleft} {\Large \bfseries Acknowledgements} \end{flushleft}
\end{center}
\vspace{0.5cm}
\begin{quote}}
{\end{quote}\end{alwayssingle}}
\newenvironment{abstracts}
{\pagestyle{empty}
\begin{alwayssingle}

\vspace{0.5cm}
\begin{quote}}
{\end{quote}\end{alwayssingle}}
% This command takes the subtitle as its argument, and uses the titling command
% \maketitlehookb plus the previously defined formatting commands to insert

\newcommand\subtitle[1]{%
\renewcommand{\maketitlehookb}{\@presubtitle#1\@postsubtitle}
\newcommand\thesubtitle{#1}}
\makeatother
% Now we define the formatting for the subtitle
\presubtitle{\begin{center}\Large} % change this as needed
\postsubtitle{\end{center}}
% Now enter the regular title information, with the new \subtitle command
\title{My Thesis Title}
\author{A.M. Author}
\subtitle{My subtitle}
\date{\today}

% These commands set up the headers. They are set up for even and odd pages the same
% Check the fancyhdr documentation for information on how to set them differently
% for odd and even pages
\lfoot{}
\cfoot{\thepage}
\rfoot{}
% Set the width of the header rule. Make 0pt to remove the rule.
\renewcommand{\footrulewidth}{.5pt}
\pagestyle{fancy}
% Remove "Chapter" from the marks
\renewcommand{\chaptermark}[1]{%
\markboth{\thechapter.\ #1}{}}

What does [Title] and [Subtitle] represent? –  Werner Jan 30 '12 at 21:11
Have a look at the packages fancyhdr and scrpage2. It depends on the documentclass. scrpage2 is recommend by a KOMA-class. –  Marco Daniel Jan 30 '12 at 21:23
I am very new to latex and have been wasting days to get this format.. –  volatNumbers Jan 30 '12 at 21:25
@Werner, tile is the document title and subtitle is work related code.. –  volatNumbers Jan 30 '12 at 21:34

Here's a version of what you want to do using the fancyhdr and titling packages. I've created a new command \subtitle (with associated formatting hooks) for the subtitle, which is not standardly provided by most document classes.

\documentclass{report}
\usepackage{titling}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\usepackage{lipsum} % for dummy text only

\makeatletter
% These commands follow the titling package format for titles
% They define user commands to format the subtitle
\newcommand\presubtitle[1]{\gdef\@presubtitle{#1}}
\newcommand\postsubtitle[1]{\gdef\@postsubtitle{#1}}
% This command takes the subtitle as its argument, and uses the titling command
% \maketitlehookb plus the previously defined formatting commands to insert
% the subtitle into the titlepage. It also generates \thesubtitle for subsequent use
\newcommand\subtitle[1]{%
\renewcommand{\maketitlehookb}{\@presubtitle#1\@postsubtitle}
\newcommand\thesubtitle{#1}}
\makeatother
% Now we define the formatting for the subtitle
\presubtitle{\begin{center}\Large} % change this as needed
\postsubtitle{\end{center}}
% Now enter the regular title information, with the new \subtitle command
\title{My Thesis Title}
\author{A.M. Author}
\subtitle{My subtitle}
\date{\today}

% These commands set up the headers. They are set up for even and odd pages the same
% Check the fancyhdr documentation for information on how to set them differently
% for odd and even pages
\lfoot{}
\cfoot{\thepage}
\rfoot{}
% Set the width of the header rule. Make 0pt to remove the rule.
\renewcommand{\footrulewidth}{0pt}
\pagestyle{fancy}
% Remove "Chapter" from the marks
\renewcommand{\chaptermark}[1]{%
\markboth{\thechapter.\ #1}{}}

\begin{document}
\maketitle
\chapter{Introduction}
\lipsum\lipsum
\end{document}
