You can always use a small picture in the header or the footer to
place things on the page:


\cfoot{I'm a normal page number \thepage}


But for a better solution you should make a better description. E.g.
do you want the landscape for the screen or print? Should the page
layout be changed? Are there (and where?) headers and footers.
