I am writing my thesis and I am using document class thesis. I want the page numbering appearing at bottom of the pages and centered.

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper, oneside, bold]{thesis}
\usepackage[left=3cm,right=2cm,top=3cm,bottom=2cm]{geometry}
\begin{document}
My text....
\end{document}

I tried writing something like that:

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper, oneside, bold]{thesis}
\usepackage[left=3cm,right=2cm,top=3cm,bottom=2cm]{geometry}
\usepackage{fancyhdr} 
\fancyhf{}
\cfoot{\thepage}

\begin{document}
    My text
\end{document}

But nothing is working. Any suggestions please.

    In your second example you have to call \pagestyle{fancy} to activate the page style provided by fancyhdr. – Marco Daniel Jun 3 '13 at 10:25

The package fancyhdr allows you the modification of the header. However the package fancyhdr doesn't overwrite the default styles instead it defines a new one named fancy. So you have to use \pagestyle{fancy}:

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper, oneside, bold]{thesis}
\usepackage[left=3cm,right=2cm,top=3cm,bottom=2cm]{geometry}
\usepackage{fancyhdr} 
\fancyhf{}
\cfoot{\thepage}
\pagestyle{fancy}    
\begin{document}
    My text
\end{document}
