# Page numbering and title issues

I have got some problems with page numbering and titles. I inserted command \pagenumbering{arabic} after \listoffigures command My intension was to start arabic pagenumbers from the introduction page . But here I have some blank spaces after the list of figures page . So page number started from that page . How can i resolve this ?

Also another issue is with title. The title of the article is seen from the contents page itself. I prefer to see it in footer only from the introduction page. How can i attain this .

My main.tex page is shown below

\graphicspath{ {images/} }

• You have a lot of \input from files we have no access to. It is quite difficult to reproduce your issue here – user31729 Jun 12 '15 at 5:11
• @botguide \chapter make blank page. You could write, for example, \chapter{Introduction} into chapters/Introduction file. Moreover, you could use \include instead \input. – juanuni Jun 12 '15 at 5:23
• it's usually safe to add \clearpage before \chapter, \pagenumbering takes effect with the current (in process) page, so you need to get to a new page before making the change. – barbara beeton Jun 12 '15 at 15:15
• \clearpage works with my issue of page numbering. And now I have only the issue of title starting on contents page. – botguide Jun 15 '15 at 19:09
