I am using scrpage2 and have defined the header and footer.

Is it possible to display the footer also on pages where the chapter begins? I guess this has to work. Header is not necessary on those pages (assuming this would look ugly and who needs header on chapter beginning?)

But I don't know what I have to define to have a footer on chapter beginning pages.

The scrpage2 commands for placing elements in the header and footer (\chead, \ifoot, ...) feature an optional argument that affects the scrplain page style, which is the default style for chapter-starting pages.


\ifoot[A remark]{A remark}
