# Begin page counting from a given page

I am writing a thesis and I wanna know how could I make to begin counting pages from a given page that I choose instead from the very first one.

• Are you using hyperref? I would use \newcommand{\gobble}[1]{}\pagenumbering{gobble} and then when you want to start the page numbering, issue \clearpage\pagenumbering{arabic}. The \clearpage may not be necessary. – Werner Jul 23 '14 at 15:57
