# How to show header on first page of chapter=

an anyone tell me why my header doenst start on the first page of my chapters? How can I let my header start on all the pages of the document? (Excluding my frontpage)

\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\pagestyle{fancy}
\fancyhf{}
\begin{document}
\chapter{some chapter}
text
\newpage
text
\end{document}

• If you're using one of the standard classes, the internal definition of \chapter includes thispagestyle{plain}. Maybe try adding this to your preamble: \usepackage{etoolbox} \apptocmd{\chapter}{\thispagestyle{fancy}}{}{} (not tested). – Bernard Oct 1 '16 at 9:07
• If you have the chapter title there with big letters, you don't Need a Header with the same Information. Leaving it empty has been done for many many years. – Johannes_B Oct 1 '16 at 9:33
• also in all standard classes the syntax is \chapter{my stuff} not \begin{chapter} – David Carlisle Oct 1 '16 at 9:35
• @Johannes_B: It seems the O.P. has some logo in the header. If there's nothing else, it makes sense, in my opinion. – Bernard Oct 1 '16 at 9:36
• I have indeed a logo in my header. Thanks for the help guys. @DavidCarlisle youre right, my bad... – user3201911 Oct 1 '16 at 9:41

See "7 Redefining plain style" of fancyhdr's documentation. Applied to the simplified example:

\documentclass{report}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\pagestyle{fancy}
\fancyhf{}

\fancypagestyle{plain}{%
\fancyhf{}%
}

\begin{document}
\chapter{some chapter}
text
\newpage
text
\end{document}


Of course, the page number should be inserted somewhere.
