    This is excellent. I am encountering a situation where I need to add a statement to the bottom of a few select pages of a document as a footer. My problem is that I need to add the footer to a page that only has two, large, floating figures on it (no inline text). The command \thispagestyle is inline with the text and does not float with the figures. How do I change the page style of the specific page where those two figures end up? Thanks.

    Dear Sir,
    I am going to write my thesis. My question is following.

    I am using following code

    \documentclass[11pt, a4paper, twoside, parindent]{Thesis}

    This gives top page header on each page with the chapter name on left and page no. on right.

    How can I get page no., chapter no. and chapter name on left (odd) page while section no./ name on right (even) page. Please help me.

      Heya!

      I created a minimal working example. Thesis is not a standard document class. I used report instead. But it shouldn’t make a difference.

      \documentclass[11pt, a4paper, twoside, parindent]{report}
      \usepackage{blindtext}
      
      \usepackage{fancyhdr}
      \pagestyle{fancy}
      \fancyhf{}
      
      \renewcommand{\chaptermark}[1]{\markboth{\thechapter.\ #1}{}}
      \renewcommand{\sectionmark}[1]{\markright{\thesection\ #1}}
      \fancyhead[LO]{Page \thepage\ -- \rightmark}
      \fancyhead[RE]{\leftmark}
      
      \begin{document}
      \tableofcontents
      \blinddocument
      \end{document}

      Cheers, Tom

    Hey
    Im trying to make footer @left side with page numbering @right n it works but not for first page of every chapter plz help

      Hi Aju,

      The first page of a chapter will always have page style plain. You can change this for example by patching the chapter command in your preamble.

      \documentclass{report}
      \usepackage{etoolbox}
      \patchcmd{\chapter}{\thispagestyle{plain}}{\thispagestyle{fancy}}{}{}

      See here for more details.

      HTH, Tom
