# Fancyhdr header and footer disappear

Just as it says in the title, my header and footer randomly disappear after my second numbered page.

This is my preamble:

% !TeX spellcheck = hr_HR
\documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{article}

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[
backend=bibtex      % biber or bibtex
,style=numeric-comp  % numerical-compressed
,sorting=none        % no sorting
,sortcites=true      % some other example options ...
,block=none
,indexing=false
,citereset=none
,isbn=true
,url=true
,doi=true            % prints doi
,natbib=true         % if you need natbib functions
]{biblatex}

\nocite{*}

\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\usepackage{indentfirst}
\usepackage{setspace}
\usepackage[croatian]{babel}

\ifx\l@croatian\@undefined
\@nopatterns{Croatian}

\captionscroatian

\usepackage{graphicx}
\graphicspath{ {img/} }

\title{MVC arhitektura unutar AngularJS razvojnog okvira}
\author{Marko Klobučar}
\date{Lipanj, 2017.}


The commands I issued to start the header and footer are as follow:

\pagestyle{fancy}
\fancyhf{}

\lhead{Sveučilište Sjever - Multimedija, oblikovanje i primjena}
\rfoot{Stranica \thepage~od~\pageref{lastpage}}

\pagenumbering{arabic}


And all is well for a whole two pages. And then suddenly the header and footer vanish on my 6th actual, but 3rd numbered page.

I am terribly sorry if this has been answered before, I searched for an hour now and I couldn't find what I was looking for. I am also a complete beginner with Latex, and would appreciate any help.

Thank you in advance! Please, let me know if I should include something I forgot.

EDIT: Here's the small-ish document.

• Marko, try to compose small but complete document, which we can compile and show your problem. For text use text filler generated by package lipsum. From provided code snippets (at least to me) is not possible to say, what is going wrong in your document. Jun 30 '17 at 14:57
• Okay, I added the short version of the document, only I removed the bibliography stuff so you can compile it. Jun 30 '17 at 15:04

Here are two possible simple codes:

• Either you use the {spacing}{1.5} environment, and you have to put the last \newpage command just before \end{spacing}, and repeat \pagestyle{fancy} right after,
• Or you use the \onehalfspacing command, and replace \end{spacing} with \singlespacing.

Here are the codes for the relevant part:

With the environment:

\begin{spacing}{1.5}
\section*{Predgovor}
Here's some text.

\newpage
\pagestyle{fancy}
\pagenumbering{arabic}

\section{Sažetak}
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.
\newpage

\section{Uvod}
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.
\newpage

\section{O tehnologiji}
\subsection{O pojmu arhitekture u softverskom razvoju}
Here's some text.

\subsection{Opis MVC arhitekture}
Here's some text.
\newpage
\end{spacing}

\pagestyle{fancy}

\section{Popis literature}
\label{lastpage}
\vspace*{-1cm}
\printbibliography[title=Bib]


With the commands:

\onehalfspacing

\section*{Predgovor}
Here's some text.
\newpage
\pagestyle{fancy}
\pagenumbering{arabic}

\section{Sažetak}
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.

\singlespacing

• Thank you very much, now it works just dandy! I used the \thispagestyle{empty} version of your answer and now it works just as I'd wanted it to in the first place. Jun 30 '17 at 20:46

I solved my issue. The problem was that The header and footer ended right after the spacing section ended, so I just did some manual wrapping and it works now. Here's the minimal code:

% !TeX spellcheck = hr_HR
\documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{article}

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[
backend=bibtex
]{biblatex}

\nocite{*}

\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\usepackage{indentfirst}
\usepackage{setspace}
\usepackage[croatian]{babel}

\ifx\l@croatian\@undefined
\@nopatterns{Croatian}

\captionscroatian

\usepackage{graphicx}
\graphicspath{ {img/} }

\end{document}


It's not the prettiest thing but it does what I wanted and that's good enough for me.

• You have no header-footer on page 6. Jun 30 '17 at 16:58

Edit Now I see the problem. See, if the following solution is acceptable to you:

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\usepackage{indentfirst}
\usepackage{setspace}
\usepackage[croatian]{babel}

\title{Title}
\author{Me}
\date{Now}

\fancyhf{}% head to be in preamble !
\rfoot{Page \thepage~of~\pageref{lastpage}}

\begin{document}
\pagestyle{fancy}
\thispagestyle{empty}
\pagenumbering{gobble}

\begin{titlepage}
\maketitle
\end{titlepage}

\newpage
\thispagestyle{plain}% or empty)

• Still doesn't work, unfortunately. If I understood correctly, I had to move the header formatting stuff into the preamble, and then just toggle the page styles where I needed them? If so, I have done exactly that but I'm still left with the same problem. Jun 30 '17 at 15:19
• @MorinoAndo, do you test my MWE? do you extend it to more pages? it works in my place. if not in your, than you have something different from me, what, is difficult to guess ... Jun 30 '17 at 15:35
• I have, it works. It also works if I move the \pagestyle{fancy} just after the title page, but the trouble is, I'd like the switch to the fancy layout to happen after the section titled "Sažetak", but if I place the switch after it, my previously mentioned problem occurs. Jun 30 '17 at 15:42
• I'm glad to hear that your problem is solved. You had bearing mind, that effect of \pagestyle{fancy} come on the next page where it is inserted. Jun 30 '17 at 15:45
• My problem isn't solved, but thank you for your input. I'll try to work something out myself. Jun 30 '17 at 15:53
