There are two types of footers in moderncv. The first one appears in CV ("resume foot" in moderncvfooti.sty), and the second one - in Cover Letter ("letter foot" in moderncvfooti.sty). I want to have a Cover Letter footer also on CV pages. How can I do this?

So, at the end I want the resume foot... CV footer

...to be changed by letter foot in the given page: Cover Letter footer

Thank you in advance.

    That was my fist idea. But adding this line into "resume foot definition" changes everything to the letter footer. I'd like to have an option to choose a footer for a given page. In fact, I need one page to be with resume foot while all others - with letter foot.

By putting this line \strut{\bfseries\upshape\@firstname~\@lastname}\\% the \strut is required to ensure the line is exactly \baselineskip tall in the section resume foot definition just before the line \ifthenelse{\isundefined{\@addressstreet}}{}{\addtofoot[]{\addresssymbol\@addressstreet}%, I was able to get the desired output. enter image description here

This modification must be done in the .sty file

    From the 'deadly sins' of LaTeX (more details here (l2tabu), 1.3: Never modify LaTeX class files or packages directly! At least copy the .sty file to your folder and save it under a different name. Better make a container class, or use \renewcommand to overwrite the relevant commands.
