I'm using fncychap Glenn option. My problem is that in the other pages when there is a header and footer i can change the color of the page number by using this code:

\fancyfoot[CE,CO]{\color{myblue} \leftmark}
\fancyfoot[LE,RO]{\color{myblue} \thepage}

but in the pages where there is the chap title the page number is in the default style. So how can i change the color of page number if there is no header and footer in the page.

  • Welcome, this is about header-footers, and has nothing to do with fncychap. Please correct the tags when you add an MWE to help us see how the headers and footers are produced in your document.

The chapter pages are using a different page style called plain, which can be adjusted separately to include color:


\fancyfoot[CE,CO]{\color{blue} \leftmark}
\fancyfoot[LE,RO]{\color{blue} \thepage}

  \fancyfoot[C]{\color{blue} \thepage}%
