# A title page set up with correct page count after ToC in crepart

Please see the writing template I just set up:

\documentclass[UTF8,a4paper]{ctexart}
\usepackage[top=.9in, bottom=.8in, left=.8in, right=.8in]{geometry}

\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\pagestyle{plain}
\title{The title the title the title}
\author{First Name}
\date{}

\begin{document}
\maketitle
\thispagestyle{fancy}
\newpage
\tableofcontents
\newpage
\section{第一章}
\subsection{第一节}
\newpage
\bibliographystyle{ieeetr}%unsrt
\bibliography{reference}

\end{document}


And the code works good and the result is shown as follows,

But what I am trying to achieve, are:

1. Add some text blocks shown in the position, (text color is black of course);
2. The page counting starts after ToC.

Because I am writing in Chinese, so the document class crepart best fits me. Can anyone give me some instructions and help what kind of package I can use? Thanks!

I wasn't able to build the ctexart class locally, and I had trouble with your chinese characters. However, I feel confident that the following should work:

1. Add some text blocks shown in the position, (text color is black of course);
\tableofcontents
\vfil%
\hfil TEXT\hfil\makebox[0.5\textwidth]{\hrulefill}\hfil\par
\hfil TEXT\hfil\makebox[0.5\textwidth]{\hrulefill}\hfil

1. The page counting starts after ToC.

Use \setcounter{page}{1} to reset the page counter and use \pagenumbering{gobble} to turn off the page number, and then \pagenumbering{arabic} for turning it back on:

Resulting code

\documentclass[UTF8,a4paper]{ctexart}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\pagestyle{plain}
\title{The title the title the title}
\author{First Name}
\date{}

\begin{document}
% Turn off pagenumbering
\pagenumbering{gobble}
\maketitle
\thispagestyle{fancy}
\newpage
\tableofcontents
\vfil%
\hfil TEXT\hfil\makebox[0.5\textwidth]{\hrulefill}\hfil\par
\hfil TEXT\hfil\makebox[0.5\textwidth]{\hrulefill}\hfil
\newpage
% Set page number to 1
\setcounter{page}{1}
% Turn on page numbering
\pagenumbering{arabic}
\section{first}
\subsection{second}
\newpage
\section{third}
\bibliographystyle{ieeetr}%unsrt
\bibliography{reference}

\end{document}


You should use differently \pagestyle and also issue \pagenumbering{arabic} when you want to start the numbering of pages. I also added the recommended bookmark package. Note the change to \headheight, required by fancyhdr.

Since you are using hyperref, I added \pagenumbering{alph} for the front matter, so to keep hyperref happy and not issue duplicate target errors.

\documentclass[
a4paper,
UTF8,
]{ctexart}

\usepackage[
top=.9in,
bottom=.8in,
left=.8in,
right=.8in
]{geometry}

\usepackage{fancyhdr}

\usepackage[
bookmarks=true,
CJKbookmarks=true,
bookmarksnumbered=true,
unicode=true,
anchorcolor=blue,
citecolor=blue,
urlcolor=blue
]{hyperref}
\usepackage{bookmark}

\fancypagestyle{first}{%
\fancyhf{}% clear all fields
}
\fancyhf{}
\fancyfoot[C]{\thepage}

\setlength{\headheight}{13pt} % to keep fancyhdr happy

\title{The title the title the title}
\author{First Name}
\date{}

\begin{document}
\pagenumbering{alph} % to keep hyperref happy
\maketitle
\thispagestyle{first}
\clearpage

\pagestyle{empty}

\tableofcontents
\clearpage

\pagenumbering{arabic}
\pagestyle{plain}

\section{北京}
\subsection{北京}
\clearpage

\bibliographystyle{ieeetr}%unsrt
\bibliography{reference}

\end{document}


Production notes. For producing the images I passed a6paper to geometry just to reduce the image size. I also added fontset=windows or I got font errors. Finally, your input produced errors, so I changed it with the Chinese for Beijing.
