Do not use left or right page style. They are only good when you print double side. They are used to differentiate odd/even pages. And if you use only 'right page' style, LO will insert a blank page after every left/right pages. And you don't want that. For single side printing, use 'default' page style with 'First Page' style as optional.

I'm trying to create a layout for my thesis in Writer. I know how to work (reasonably well) with page/paragraph styles.

My problem is this: I have to hand in my thesis with only one side of the page printed, the back has to be blank.

I thought I cloud cheat by only using right page styles, because Libre inserts a blank page when two even or odd page follow one another. But these blank pages change my page count. It is true that I actually have more pages than the written ones but it shouldn't show in my page number.

I tried correcting the page number - but I can't figure out how. With each new page the number of blank pages increases - so the fifth page should have the page number 3 (3 written pages plus two blank ones) while the ninth page should have the page number 5 (5 written pages plus 4 blanks).

Is there an easier way to accomplish my goal? Or does anybody have an idea how I can correct my page number/count?

Any hints would be appreciated! Thank you for your time!
