# fancyfoot page numbering is overwriten at TOC and List of Fig pages

I want to have the page numbers on the left of even and right of odd pages. So I did the following

\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\pagestyle{fancy}
\fancyfoot[LE,RO]{\thepage}
\cfoot{}


This works fine for all pages except table of content and list of figures. On those two pages the number is still at the center of the footer. How can I fix it?

PS. My question bit similar to the question How to get rid of the default page numbering when using fancyhdr but not the same.

• Although esdd already provided a solution, please post a MWE in order to compare. – user31729 Jul 16 '14 at 21:15

Unfortunately, there is no MWE in the question but I guess that you have to redefine the pagestyle plain:

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{blindtext}

\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\pagestyle{fancy}
\fancyfoot[LE,RO]{\thepage}
\cfoot{}

% redefine page style plain
\fancypagestyle{plain}{%
\fancyhf{} % clear all header and footer fields
\fancyfoot[LE,RO]{\thepage}
