I am writing a curriculum vitae using Plasmati Graduate CV Latex template. I have made some modifications in order to add both a footer and a header, using the packages scrpage2 and lastpage. I am satisfied with the resulting footer, but I have problems with the page numbering in the header.

In the header, the page numbering appears two times (see picture):

  1. In the format "page/total number of pages" (which is what I want);
  2. Only the page number in the upper right part.

I would like like to remove the simple page numbering (i.e. element 2. of the list above) and leave only the "page/total number of pages" format.

Is this possible?

The code I am using is:

    Use \clearscrheadfoot to remove the predefined contents of the header and footer fields before you set your own contents. Alternatively you can add \ohead[]{} to your code. – esdd Dec 14 '16 at 17:40

    Thanks a lot ! \clearscrheadfootsolved my problem! – GLB Dec 14 '16 at 20:23

Use \clearscrheadfoot to remove the predefined contents of the header and footer fields before you set your own contents.

\cfoot{<your footer>}

Alternatively you can add \ohead[]{} to your code.

  • I have the issue that it shows the page number only on the first page. \pagestyle{scrheadings} does not function only \thispagestyle{scrheadings}. How can I get the footer on all pages in my cv/resume? – Til Hund Mar 31 '17 at 20:35
  • @TilHund Please ask a new question and provide a MWE that shows your issue. – esdd Mar 31 '17 at 22:27
