# Remove footer on title page [duplicate]

Apologies if this question has been answered already . I am struggling to remove the page number from the footer on the title page, I am happy for the footer to be removed completey from the title page or for the page number to be removed from that page and for the counter to begin on the page after.

• \thispagestyle{plain} is setting the footer. Remove it. – Johannes_B Apr 9 '17 at 14:56
• Replace \thispagestyle{plain} with \thispagestyle{empty}. – Bernard Apr 9 '17 at 14:57
• Neither of those work unfortunately – Daniel Rawlings Apr 9 '17 at 14:59
• @DanielRawlings, it works, however had to be in right place -- after \begin{titlepage}, i.e. \begin{document} \begin{titlepage} \pagestyle{empty} \centering. Off-topic: some packages you load twice ... – Zarko Apr 9 '17 at 15:13
• You are also adding footer material through the background. Add \NoBgThispage before titlepage if you want to suppress it. – Ulrike Fischer Apr 9 '17 at 15:32
