# How do I switch page styles with scrpage2?

I want to use two different footers with scrpage2: one with no \pagemark (page number) on the first page; and then one that includes a \pagemark on all following pages. How do I perform the switch between the two page styles? What I have below renders the first page footer correctly, but the rest are blank. I feel like this is more a general LaTeX header question than KOMA, as I found the KOMA documentation unclear on this question.

\documentclass[11pt,letterpaper]{scrartcl}

\usepackage{myinfo} % \myauthor, \mytitle, and others come from here

%%% Select typefaces

\usepackage{fontspec}
\usepackage{xunicode}
\usepackage{xltxtra}
\defaultfontfeatures{Mapping=tex-text}
\setromanfont [Ligatures={Common},Numbers={OldStyle}]{Linux Libertine O}
\setsansfont{Linux Biolinum O}
\setmonofont[Scale=0.8]{Inconsolata}

%%% Define header and footer with scrpage2

\usepackage{scrpage2}
\ofoot[\MakeLowercase{\myauthor · Curriculum Vitae} · \pagemark]{\MakeLowercase{Curriculum Vitae · Last updated \today}}

\setkomafont{section}{\normalfont\Large\sffamily}
\setkomafont{subsection}{\normalfont\normalsize\scshape}

%%% Custom hanging indent for items in C.V.

\newenvironment{cvdatum}
{\noindent\par\leftskip=1em \parindent=-\leftskip}
{\par}

\begin{document}

\section*{Education}

\begin{cvdatum}
blah
\end{cvdatum}

\section*{Publications}

\begin{cvdatum}
blah
\end{cvdatum}

\pagestyle{plain}

\section*{Works in progress}

\end{document}

The page style controlled by the optional argument of \ofoot & friends is called scrplain, not plain. Set \pagestyle{scrheadings} for the whole document (in the preamble or immediately after \begin{document}) and set \thispagestyle{scrplain} immediately after \begin{document}. (Note: I switched argument contents in \ofoot.)

\documentclass{scrartcl}

\usepackage{scrpage2}
\ofoot[\MakeLowercase{Curriculum Vitae · Last updated \today}]
{\MakeLowercase{(Author) · Curriculum Vitae} · \pagemark}

\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}

\thispagestyle{scrplain}

\section*{Education}

\lipsum[1-2]

\section*{Publications}

\lipsum[1-2]

\section*{Works in progress}

\lipsum[1-2]

\end{document}

That's it! Or rather the other way around (\pagestyle{scrplain} in preamble, \thispagestyle{scrheadings} in document). Thanks for correcting the oversight and illuminating how the switch is articulated. – tyche Mar 6 '12 at 6:38
