Is there any way I can turn off the footer from appearing in all but the last page of the CV? (and once again in the cover letter). Is a nice idea that even with just the first page they could call you, but I need the space. I've already modified the template in order to do so, but I wanna try to keep my cv as vanilla as possible.

\documentclass[11pt,letterpaper,sans]{moderncv}

% moderncv themes
\moderncvstyle{casual}
\moderncvcolor{blue}
\usepackage[scale=0.75]{geometry}

% personal data
\name{John}{Doe}
\phone[mobile]{+1~(234)~567~890}

% content

\begin{document}
\makecvtitle

\section{Education}

\pagebreak % just to simulate a lenghty CV for this MWE

\section{Computer skills}
Second page

\end{document}

• Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – jub0bs Dec 1 '13 at 12:03
• Still. Please add some MWE here. – jub0bs Dec 1 '13 at 13:10

• Hem... You're the one asking for help here, and yet you expect others to do the tedious work. The least you could do is post a minimal working example (MWE). I insist. – jub0bs Dec 1 '13 at 13:41
• Posting the MWE in the question as suggested – Abilio Marques Dec 1 '13 at 13:53

If I understand correctly, you want the footer only in the last page.

This can be achieved in the following way:

1. Put \pagestyle{empty} just after \makecvtitle to remove the footer from all pages.
2. Put \thispagestyle{plain} just before \end{document}. This ensures that the last page has the footer (note that moderncv redefines and uses the plain style).

MWE

\documentclass[11pt,letterpaper,sans]{moderncv}

% moderncv themes
\moderncvstyle{casual}
\moderncvcolor{blue}
\usepackage[scale=0.75]{geometry}

% personal data
\name{John}{Doe}
\phone[mobile]{+1~(234)~567~890}

% content

\begin{document}
\makecvtitle
\pagestyle{empty}

\section{Education}

\pagebreak % just to simulate a lenghty CV for this MWE

\section{Computer skills}
Second page

\thispagestyle{plain}
\end{document}


Output:

To remove extra white space from footer you can also use

\usepackage[scale=0.75, top=1cm, bottom=1cm]{geometry}


Add/Edit the above code at the beginning of your Latex file. Setting "bottom" length is doing the wonders over here.

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper,sans]{moderncv}

% modern themes
\moderncvstyle{banking}
\moderncvcolor{black}
%\renewcommand{\familydefault}{\sfdefault}
\nopagenumbers{}

% character encoding
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
%\usepackage{CJKutf8}


• This pushes down the footer across all pages. The OP is requesting something more particular, not really a global change. And why also adjust top? – Werner Nov 12 '17 at 18:02
