Here is the code for my document:

\documentclass[12pt, letterpaper]{report}


My issue is that I cannot make the title page display the header that I have defined. How do I fix this? As a side remark, should I be formatting this differently if I want to conform to APA guidelines?

P.S. It may or may not be relevant that I am creating this on Ubuntu. If any of you suggest that I install a particular package, please give me a quick tutorial explaining how. I don't entirely understand how Ubuntu processes packages.

Thank you for reading.


\maketitle in the standard classes always does \thispagestyle{empty} so you don't get the standard page heading on the opening page. If you do want the standard heading perhaps the simplest is to just locally define \thispagestyle to do nothing. (An alternative being to use the fancyhdr syntax to redefine the empty page style to be less empty.)


Produces a title with the page header defined for normal pages.
