# Footer on EVERY page (including chapter*'s/ chapter's first page

I have the following problem: I want to have a footer on every page (even on the first pages of a chapter* or chapter, the tableofcontents, the bibliography as well as the acronyms page. I achieved to get footers on every second and following pages of a chapter using the post I found on stackoverflow. Is there a simple possibility to get the footer on really EVERY page?

\documentclass[a4paper, 12pt, DIV=calc, headings=small]{scrreprt}

\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}

%Define footers
\fancypagestyle{Whatever}{
\fancyfoot[C]{Whatever \thepage} %Centered footer
}

\pagestyle{Whatever} %Set page style.

\begin{document}
\chapter*{Test1}
\lipsum[1-8] % Filler Text

\chapter*{Test2}
\lipsum[1-8] % Filler Text
\end{document}

• I note that the document class is doing something behind the scenes, in terms of chapter definitions. That's why the code is necessary. A custom document class, which does not define chapters that way, might not need such code. – user103221 Dec 14 '16 at 20:21
• Yeah, that can be... But it works as expected :D – FranzHuber23 Dec 18 '16 at 12:08

Whole solution (Thank goes to Ulrike Fischer):

\documentclass[a4paper, 12pt, DIV=calc, headings=small]{scrreprt}

\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}

%Define footers
\fancypagestyle{Whatever}{
\fancyfoot[C]{Whatever \thepage} %Centered footer
}

%Set page style
\pagestyle{Whatever} %Set page style.
\renewcommand\chapterpagestyle{Whatever} %New command

\begin{document}
\chapter*{Test1}
\lipsum[1-8] % Filler Text

\chapter*{Test2}
\lipsum[1-8] % Filler Text
\end{document}
