i wish to remove the header and the footer of my acknowledgements page but retain the page number, i'm easily able to do this by using thispagestyle{plain} but it ends up placing the page number in the center of the footer, i want it in the right corner, how do i do that? also editing the code as given in the documentation of the package fancyhdr, which is \thispagestyle{fancy}{ \fancyhead{} \fancyfoot{} \fancyfoot[R]{\thepage} }, works for the acknowledgements page but ends up editing all the other pages too, which is removing their headers too... my question is, is there no way in which i can edit a single page's header, footer and pagenumber without altering the ones of other pages.

Adapted from the documentation of fancyhdr:

  \fancyhf{}% clear all header and footer fields
  • it doesn't help, because the fancyhf{} removes my header and footer

  • ...@RBK, you said "I wish to remove the header and footer". So yes, it removes your header and footer.

  • More exactly: After Bernard's code, \thispagestyle{plain} removes the header and footer, and the page number will be in the right corner of the footer.

  • @RBK: It first removes header and footer. But the second action is to add a footer in the right corner. So globally, it replaces the previous page style.

  • @Rmano, yes i did say that, but only for that particular page, but the code ends up removing header and footer from all the pages, i just don't want it on that particular page
