# How to apply header to every page after title page

I am trying to add my name to the top right corner of every page but the title page. I have been using the solutions in the link below for reference as I have similar requirements for how to create the header, but all of the methods apply the header to the title page also. How can I apply the header to every page but the title page?

How can I add text in the top right corner of a page _without_ using fancyhdr

Thank you very much.

• There are many incomplete informations like which document class you are using, are you using titlepage or \maketitle etc. Please clarify and post a minimal working example (MWE) – user11232 Mar 30 '15 at 5:12

\documentclass[a4paper]{article}
\usepackage{atbegshi,picture,afterpage}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\title{Some article}
\author{Author here}

\begin{document}
\maketitle
\afterpage{\AtBeginShipout{\AtBeginShipoutUpperLeft{%
}}}

\lipsum[1-30]

\end{document}


With background package, you can use \NoBgThispage

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{background}
\usepackage{lipsum}% just to generate filler text

\backgroundsetup{
scale=1,
angle=0,
opacity=.9,
position=current page.north east,
nodeanchor=north east,
hshift=-2cm,
vshift=-1cm,
firstpage=true,
contents={Some text}
}

\title{Some article}
\author{Author here}

\begin{document}
\NoBgThispage
\maketitle
\lipsum[1-30]

\end{document}


\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{eso-pic}% http://ctan.org/pkg/eso-pic
\usepackage{lipsum}% http://ctan.org/pkg/lipsum
\usepackage{afterpage}

\title{Some article}
\author{Author here}

\begin{document}
\maketitle

\afterpage{%
\AtPageUpperLeft{%
\hspace{\paperwidth}%
\raisebox{-\baselineskip}{%
\makebox[0pt][r]{Here is some interesting text}
}}}%
}

\lipsum[1-30]

\end{document}


I show the plain TeX solution here. You didn't specify what macro package are you using.

\def\nextheader#1{\headline={\hfil\global\headline={#1}}}
