Slider + Thumbnail page (3 posts)

    Hi there,

    I was wondering if anybody van point me the right direction. Im developing my own theme for my own use. Im not a programmer, do know my HTML and CSS and a little PHP and so on.

    The THING!
    I'm creating a page with a wide slider on top, below that it pulls thumbs and excerpts. So I started messing around with multiple loops, due I think that is the case.

    What the page has to do. Only load posts from a certain category, show the 1th 5 in the nivo slider (which already has been setup) followed by thumbnails from the rest of the posts in the category.

    <?php
    /*
    Template Name: Portfolio
    */
    ?>
    
    <?php get_header(); ?>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="<?php bloginfo('template_url'); ?>/js/jquery-1.4.3.min.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="<?php bloginfo('template_url'); ?>/js/jquery.nivo.slider.pack.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    
    jQuery(window).load(function() {
    	jQuery('#slider').nivoSlider({
    		effect:'fade', //Specify sets like: 'fold,fade,sliceDown'
        slices:15,
    		animSpeed:500, //Slide transition speed
    		pauseTime:5000,
    		startSlide:0, //Set starting Slide (0 index)
    		directionNav:true, //Next & Prev
    		directionNavHide:true, //Only show on hover
    		controlNav:true, //1,2,3...
    		keyboardNav:true, //Use left & right arrows
    		pauseOnHover:true, //Stop animation while hovering
    		captionOpacity:0.8, //Universal caption opacity
    	});
    });
    </script>
    
    <body>
        <nav>
          <?php wp_nav_menu(array('menu' => 'Main Nav Menu')); ?>
          <a href="http://www.twitter.com/Kortschot" target="_blank" class="twitterbird-nav"></a>
        </nav>
    
        <p style="font-size: 16px; text-align:center; padding:10px 0 0 0;">Deze pagina is nog in ontwikkeling</p>
    
        <div id="main-content-werk">
          <div id="slider">
           <?php $my_query = new WP_Query('showposts=5&category_name=werk'); while ($my_query->have_posts()) : $my_query->the_post(); ?>
           <a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" title="<?php the_title(); ?>">
           <img src="<?php echo get_post_meta($post->ID, 'slider-image', true); ?>" alt="" title="<?php the_title(); ?>" />
           </a>
           <?php endwhile; ?>
          </div>
          <br clear="all" />
        </div> <!-- end main-content-werk -->
    
        <?php get_footer(); ?>

    Anybody who can show me the way... I appreciate it.

    With Regards,
    Paul te Kortschot

    little update,

    Now I have:

    <div id="slider">
              <?php $my_query = new WP_Query('category_name=werk&posts_per_page=3');
               while ($my_query->have_posts()) : $my_query->the_post();?>
               <a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" title="<?php the_title(); ?>"><img src="<?php echo get_post_meta($post->ID, 'slider-image', true); ?>" alt="" title="<?php the_title(); ?>" /></a>
               <?php endwhile; ?>
             </div> <!-- END slider -->
    
             <br clear="all" />
    
            <?php rewind_posts(); ?>
            <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
              <a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" title="<?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a>
          <?php endwhile; endif; ?>

    But now it posts the page permalink below the slider... I cant get it to list the category posts. When I get this working I can use offset to skip the posts in the slider... at least thats the plan.

    Anybody who has an idea.... please, i'm all ears.

    With Regards,
    Paul
