# Change headers for ToC in classicthesis

Classicthesis template provides some nice headers using scrlayer-scrpage package, defined in the preamble. I want to keep it for the whole text, but for acknowledgements, abstract and ToC I'd like to have the page number at the outer footer part of the page, and nothing else (no header). For that, I tried using:

\pagestyle{scrheadings}
\ofoot[\pagemark]{\pagemark}


at the begining of each of these parts (acknowledgements, abstract and contents), but it changes the whole document. However, if I enclose, for example, the Acknowledgements part between brackets, and this part has an even number of pages, the last page doesn't get the number. How can I solve this?

\pdfbookmark[1]{Acknowledgements}{Acknowledgements}

\begin{flushright}{\slshape
blablabla}
\end{flushright}

\bigskip

\begingroup
\let\clearpage\relax
\let\cleardoublepage\relax
\let\cleardoublepage\relax

blablabla
\lipsum[1-5]

\endgroup


and the part of the main.tex calling Acknowledgments.tex is:

\pagenumbering{roman}
\pagestyle{plain}

\include{FrontBackmatter/Titlepage}
\cleardoublepage\include{FrontBackmatter/Dedication}
\cleardoublepage\include{FrontBackmatter/Acknowledgments}


So I get this, with number in the first page (number V in this case) and no number in the following.

Use \clearpage or \cleardoublepage (depending on the document class and its options) before changing page style or page style settings.

Do you want to use page style plain for all pages in TOC and other chapters? Then you can use

\cleardoublepage
\pagestyle{plain}
\tableofcontents
\chapter*{Introduction}
...
\cleardoublepage


Example:

\documentclass[a4paper]{book}
\usepackage{classicthesis}
\usepackage{blindtext}% only for dummy text

\begin{document}
\Blindtext

\cleardoublepage
\pagestyle{plain}
\tableofcontents
\chapter*{Introduction}
\Blindtext
\cleardoublepage

• Oh god, there it was... I had modified the .sty file to make some changes in the header of the rest of the document, and I had accidentally deleted the line \ofoot[\small\pagemark]{}. I can't believe... Thank you so much! Should I delete this probably misleading post? – Alan Rapoport Aug 24 at 1:58
