# Can't remove page number with \thispagestyle{empty} or \pagenumbering{gobble}

I'm using the template available here but it shows a 1 of 1 page numbering at the bottom. I'm trying to remove it to no avail.

Adding \pagenumbering{gobble} removes the numbers but the output still prints "of" at the bottom. Adding \thispagestyle{empty} removes the "of" like I want but also removes the logo at the top generated by:

\makeletterhead{Uiuc}{\Cheader{\vspace{16pt}\includegraphics[width=0.5\linewidth]{logo.png}}}
\lthUiuc


So I'm out of ideas now and could not find any other solution. Could anyone please help?

Here is a stripped down version of the tex file:

\documentclass[11pt,pressrelease]{newlfm}
\usepackage{charter}
\lthUiuc
\begin{document}
\begin{newlfm}
my body
\end{newlfm}
\end{document}


If you add \thispagestyle{empty} right before \end{newlfm} then the page number together with the "of" disappears together with the "my title" on top.

The newlfm document class provides the \Cfooter marco which you can use to set the central footer. However, the footers are reset when you start a newlfm environment. You can get around this by placing \Cfooter inside the newlfm environment.

\documentclass[11pt,pressrelease]{newlfm}
\usepackage{charter}
\newcommand{\subtitle}{This is a subtitle.}
\lthUiuc
\begin{document}
\begin{newlfm}
\Cfooter{}
abc
\end{newlfm}
\end{document}


Note that you need the definition of \subtitle in order to make the example compile.

A global removal of this is possible via etoolbox:

\usepackage{etoolbox}% http://ctan.org/pkg/etoolbox
\makeatletter
% \patchcmd{<cmd>}{<search>}{<replace>}{<success>}{<failure>}
\patchcmd{\@set@em@up}{\PhrMore}{\@gobble}{}{}% Remove page numbering within newlfm
\PhrMore{}% Reset (centered) footer to be empty.
\makeatother


\PhrMore{\thepage\ of \pageref{LastPage}} \Cfooter{\@more@phr}\cfooter{\@more@phr} is executed when in pressrelease mode, setting the footer to contain the "X of Y" page numbering. The above patch gobbles this argument and resets it to be empty {} (otherwise defaulting to --- more ---.
