How do I create a featured product jQuery slider in Magento 1.5?

Actually, I’m not too concerned about the jQuery slider part, as I already have that part done. I’m more concerned about what code to use to pull a set number of products (title, image, description and link) from my Featured Products category and loop it into the code that generates the slider.

I want to place it in a custom template I’ve created, and am fine with just hard coding the slider into that template.

Does this make sense? I’m so used to using WordPress, the way Magento is set up is a bit confusing (too many files to edit!).

For additional information, if needed, I\’m trying to convert http://www.kateliving.com/ into a Magento store (because WordPress doesn’t have any good e-commerce plugins).

Any help would be much appreciated!

You can use this category slider which fully suits your requirement.
