How can you start pagenumbering after the title page and included pdf-page? So at the third page should be 3. I have at the moment 1 in the front page and 2 in the third page. So two mistakes.

  • since you want a page number one greater than what is there now, after the \clearpage, \stepcounter{page} should advance the current value by one. – barbara beeton Dec 3 '13 at 14:16
  • @barbarabeeton Thank you! Your answer solves one problem. The other remains: to take off the pagenumber from the title page. – Léo Léopold Hertz 준영 Dec 3 '13 at 14:33

there are two problems here:

  • omit the page number from the title page. this can be done by adding


    after \maketitle.

  • change the page number after the pdf-page (which is now 2) to 3. this can be done by inserting


    after the \clearpage.

  • The command thispagestyle{empty} should be after the command maketitle too. – Léo Léopold Hertz 준영 Dec 3 '13 at 16:17
  • @Masi -- you're correct, thanks. actually, only one `\thispagestyle{empty} is needed; answer corrected. – barbara beeton Dec 3 '13 at 17:06
