I have WordPress set to display 5 posts per page, which is what I want. However, I'm now starting to use the new post formats (link, status, quote etc.) but I would these to not be counted towards the 5 posts per page. So how can I make the loop display the last x posts until it hits 5 standard posts?
As per comment trying to do this in one action will probably cause unholy pagination issues.
It might be easier to limit main query to normal posts, query posts with formats separately (depending on what you have in normal posts by date) and mix two sets together on display.
