# fancyhdr: include footnote only on page 1, but header on all pages

I want to put a footer on page 1 but not on other pages. I also want to put a header on all pages. Could some one tell me how I can do that? The code I am using so far (only relevant lines shown):

\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\pagestyle{fancy}
\pagenumbering{gobble}

\begin{document}

\maketitle
\thispagestyle{fancy}
\lfoot{This is my footer text}


This generates a header on all pages (which is good), but also a footer on all pages. I don't want footer on pages other than the first.

Welcome to TeX.sx! Usually, we don't put a greeting or a "thank you" in our posts. While this might seem strange at first, it is not a sign of lack of politeness, but rather part of our trying to keep everything very concise. Upvoting is the preferred way here to say "thank you" to users who helped you. –  Kurt Oct 19 '12 at 17:54
Got it @Kurt! :) –  Nik Oct 19 '12 at 17:56
Have you tried to add \lfoot{} after the titlepage to clear the footer? –  Kurt Oct 19 '12 at 17:56
Actually I don't know the extent of my titlepage. It is a conference paper and so there is no titlepage. –  Nik Oct 19 '12 at 17:58
Oh cool! That worked! :) –  Nik Oct 19 '12 at 18:00

See this MWE, it shoud do it for you:
