# Different headers for odd and even pages

I mean I would like to have for example

• name of author on odd pages.
• name of article on even pages.

How can I do it?

Many thanks,

with "different title" do you mean different header? If yes, you should take a look at the fancyhdr package –  Spike Jul 21 '12 at 14:07

This request only seems viable in the context of headers. As such, here's a fancyhdr implementation using a standard document class (article):

\documentclass[twoside]{article}
\usepackage{lipsum}% http://ctan.org/pkg/lipsum
\usepackage{fancyhdr}% http://ctan.org/pkg/fancyhdr
\fancypagestyle{mypagestyle}{%
\fancyhead[OC]{An Author}% Author on Odd page, Centred
\fancyhead[EC]{A title}% Title on Even page, Centred
\fancyfoot[C]{\thepage}%
}
\pagestyle{mypagestyle}
\title{A title}
\author{An Author}
\begin{document}
\maketitle
\section{A section}\lipsum[1-20]
\end{document}


twoside is required to allow Odd and Even side varying page styles, but you most likely already use this class option.

Since the \maketitle macro is "self-destructing" and thereby erases \@author and \@title, you need to either make a copy of it into a different macro, or write the author and title in the respective headers manually.
