Thanks, my professor likes us to use MLA style papers, but with a title page with no numbers on the first page. This seems to be the best way to do it!

Bullshit. Simply go to Insert -> Field -> Other. Now select Page and Page Number. Add Offset as -1. That will start the numbering from second page. Doesn't get easier than this.

Hi Gitmo,

That will work if you want the second page to start with a 1. If you want it to start with a 2 then you need to use styles. Also, if you do it with the offset and save it in .doc format, the effect is lost. And if you do a table of contents, the TOC ignores the offset and something on the 10th page, aka "page 9" is listed as on page 10.

Also, the Pagination plugin is an even simpler way.
