# How to apply custom headers/footers on pages with new chapters?

I'm writing my final report in LaTeX for my bachelor's degree. I'm aiming at having a document similar to the .doc template used normally.

I want to have my customs headers and footers applied on pages when I'm starting a new chapter.

I'm using documentclass report with fancyhdr and lastpage packages.

My headers are defined like this:

\lhead{\myTitle}
\cfoot{\thepage\ of \pageref{LastPage}}


My chapters are created using standard \chapter{title} macro.

On pages with new chapters, the only headers/footers I see is the standard page number at the bottom.

What should I do?

EDIT: I've finally gone with Peter Breitfeld's solution. I'Ve gone a step further and created my own chapter command:

\newcommand{\myChapter}[1]{
\chapter{#1}
\thispagestyle{fancy}
}


Thanks for the help!

LaTeX by default switches to \pagestyle{plain} on pages with \chapter{...}. You have to overwrite this:

\documentclass{report}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\usepackage{lastpage}

\pagestyle{fancy}

\begin{document}

\chapter{Introduction}
\thispagestyle{fancy}    %% <---- switch
some Text

\newpage
some more text

\end{document}

You should better redefine the plain pagestyle as described in the documentation of fancyhdr –  Ulrike Fischer Mar 30 '12 at 20:36
