# fancyhdr clearing first page of a chapter [duplicate]

Hi have already a working fancyheader, but it is also showing on the chapter beginning which I want to avoid (see attachment).

 \pagestyle{plain} % reset page numbering to 1,2,3,..
\pagenumbering{arabic}
\setcounter{page}{1}

\fancypagestyle{plain}
\fancyhf{}
\pagestyle{fancy}
\fancyfoot[C]{}

• Welcome to TeX - LaTeX! In order for others to help more efficiently, please consider providing a minimal working example, starting with \documentclass and ending with \end{document} – Alexis Pigeon Aug 13 '14 at 14:59
• Your syntax of \fancypagestyle is wrong: it should have two arguments. A MWE is definitely needed. – egreg Aug 13 '14 at 15:09
• You don't need \fancypagestyle here at all. I you just use \pagestyle{fancy}, it will all work properly as that style will not affect the first page of chapters. Also, you are unnecessarily complicating things. fancyhdr includes facilities for different stuff on odd and even pages - you don't need to test the page numbers yourself. And \pagenumbering{arabic} sets the numbering to 1,2,3... and the page number back to 1 so the other commands are unnecessary. – cfr Aug 13 '14 at 15:58
• Two almost identical questions, both solvable by correctly use fancypagestyle A solution here would just be the same as i gave to your other question. I vote to close. – Johannes_B Feb 22 '15 at 20:07
