I am using hyperref together with lastpage. My problem is that \pageref{LastPage} gets the same color as the links identified with hyperref. I want it to be just the ordinary color (e.g. black)

Allow me to adapt the chosen answer to my previous question about lastpage:




\cfoot{\thepage\ of \pageref{LastPage}}





I tried \usepackage{color} and then modifying the \cfoot... line to \cfoot{\thepage\ of \color{black}\pageref{LastPage}}, but to no avail.


Use \pageref* as described in the hyperref manual.

    (I made the assumption that you also do not want the page number of the last page to be a link.) – Willie Wong Oct 26 '10 at 15:25

In case you do want the page number of the last page to be a link, you nearly got it: \usepackage{color} (or xcolor) and

\cfoot{\thepage\ of {\hypersetup{linkcolor=black}\pageref{LastPage}}}

instead of

\cfoot{\thepage\ of \color{black}\pageref{LastPage}}

The additional brackets around the link to be coloured differently ensure that the colour change is local to this group, i.e. following links will be coloured Maroon (or whatsoever was chosen before) again.

Additionally you need to change \href{mailto:my_email@email.com}{my_email@email.com} to \href{mailto:my_email@email.com}{my\_email@email.com} and Maroon needs to be defined as colour.

  • This does not work. – Jed May 23 '12 at 20:30
  • @Jed: Yes, there seem to have been introduced some changes in the recent version of hyperref. Also _ must be changed into \_ and Maroon is no longer recognized. Thanks for pointing this out! I updated my answer. – Stephen May 31 '12 at 15:10
