My chapters are using scrheadings, as well my entire document. How can I remove the footer, only in chapter pages, and produce a different header?

Adjust the page style scrplain, that's the style of chapter starting pages. You can do it by using the optional argument of the scrpage2 commands such as \ihead, \ohead etc. It's described in the KOMA Script manual, just look for scrplain.


With modern versions of KOMA-script package scrlayer-scrpage deals with headers and footers`. The mechanism is the same though.

\ihead[chapterstart/plain]{\leftmark{} on normal pages}
\ofoot[soda pop]{\pagemark}

More information can be found in the KOMA-manual, as usual.

    @JamieJ: Note also the command \chapterpagestyle with which you can set an other style than scrplain for chapter pages. See the maual, e. g. page 66.
