Headers in Classicthesis-Styled CV

Postby mr_muffin » Fri Jul 03, 2015 11:19 am

Good morning,
I learned it is good practice to put your name as header on each page of the CV. I am using Classicthesis-Styled CV. I tried to use the fancyhdr package but it returns me an error message:

LaTeX Error: Command \chead already defined.
Or name \end... illegal, see p.192 of the manual.

Which I understand it means there is already a way of using headers in the document class that I am not allowed to override?

How can I define a header with this document class?

Thanks a lot

classicthesis uses package scrpage2 to set the headers and footers.

Change the documentclass line to read the following


Add this before the document starts:
  1. \chead{THIS IS THE HEADER}
  2. \pagestyle{scrheadings}
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.
