query_posts and pagination problem

    Hi.

    I am developing a magazine style theme for WordPress. I want to display the latest 3 posts on the front page and on the upcoming pages the default number of posts.

    The problem is, it is displaying the first 3 posts on the front page and then on the next page it displays posts 11 to 20 or a 404 error if there are less then 11 posts published.

    Here’s the code I’m using:

    <?php if(!is_paged()) { ?>
      <?php $page = (get_query_var('paged')) ? get_query_var('paged') : 1;
        query_posts("paged=$page&posts_per_page=3"); ?>
      // The_Loop
    <?php } ?>
    <?php else { ?>
      <?php $page = (get_query_var('paged')) ? get_query_var('paged') : 1;
        query_posts("paged=$page"); ?>
      // The_Loop
    <?php } ?>

    So technically posts 4 to 10 are never displayed. Besides from that, the last page always displays a 404 error, although the link to it is displayed.

    Any ideas what i’m doing wrong?

    If you can stand 13 posts on the first page, and 10 on the rest, could just use a get_posts() loop for the first 3 posts and let the ‘normal’ loop display the remaining 10 posts and then let next_posts_link/previous_posts_link handle the rest.

    But, also wonder if Scott Reilly’s Inject Query Posts plugin might be useful…haven’t tried it but something to consider.
