since I don't know how to create the wanted title page, I decided to leave out the \maketitle command after \begin{document} since the teacher is not expecting the title. Now I am having the problem, that the counting starts on page 2, excluding my first page to being numbered. How can I still include a page number of page 1?



% Determine if the image is too wide for the page.

% Resize figures that are too wide for the page.

\aclfinalcopy % Uncomment this line for the final submission
%\def\aclpaperid{***} %  Enter the acl Paper ID here


\title{Coursework 1}


\section{Task A(a.):

    \section{Task A(a.)

%References - needs no heading


Thanks for the help.

  • Please post a compilable code reproducing your problem. This being said, the titling package yields tools to customise the \maketitle command.

  • it should be compilable now thank you. I tried titling, but as far as I understood does it create a title page, and then starts counting. Is there a way in which I just have the first page numbered without adding a titlepage?

  • I think titling does not necessarily create a title page (check in the documentation). This probably depends on the document class

This should meet your requirements --Title Page will not have any page number --Page numbering will start from next page(after title page) at Pg.1 and so on


    \title{Some Random Title}
    \author{Author Name}


    \rfoot{Page \thepage}
    Some random words.    
    Some random words on second page.


1) Title page non numbered, text in another page as page 1:

Your title author and whatever  here. The format and content is up to you. 
\lipsum[1-10] % dummy text 

2) Title in the same page that text, starting in page 1:

\title{Your title}
\author{Your Name}
\lipsum[1-10] % dummy text
