I am having a problem with the Table of Contents, List of Tables, and List of Figures. What I want is that ToC, LoT and LoF should not have roman page numbers on the first page. All three of them will be several pages long, and page numbers should appear from the second pages, onwards.


\newcites{lop}{List of Publications}
\hyphenation{arti-ficial draw-back para-meters relati-onships rev-erse}

\thesistitle{MY TITLE}


\degreemajor{MY SUBJECT}

\authors{MY NAME}

\university{MY UNIVERSITY}

\department{MY DEPARTMENT}
















            Dedicated to my loving parents

  • Welcome to TeX SX! Could you please post a full compilable code? We don't even know what's your document class

  • The document class is thesis. It is a class file I have got from my peers. It can be found at sharelatex.com/templates/thesis/… Commented Sep 4, 2019 at 18:07
  • I have solved the problem partially by adding \tocloft in the class file and \tocloftpagestyle{empty} before \begin{document} as suggested in tex.stackexchange.com/questions/226038/…. However, the problem remains for the List of Abbreviations. Also, the ToC, LoT, and LoF appear in the contents with incorrect page numbers (i.e. one page after). Somebody, please help!

  • You're welcome. I completely had forgotten this one!
