I was wondering if this is possible.
I have a custom post type call projects that displays a metabox with drop down menu. In that drop down menu I have a few choices listed, draft, open, pending, and completed. Once you select which field you would like, I would like the ability to display a post count of that choice on the front end from the selected author only when they are login.
Example would be author A selects complete 4 times on 4 different posts. So when author A logs onto the site he will see on the front end a number 4 with the word completed.
This is what I am using to display the drop down menu
array( 'name' => __( 'Project Status', 'projects' ), 'desc' => __( '', 'projects' ), 'id' => $prefix . 'project_select', 'type' => 'select', 'options' => array( 'Select a Status' => __( 'Select a Status', 'projects' ), 'Draft' => __( 'Draft', 'projects' ), 'Open' => __( 'Open', 'projects' ), 'Pending' => __( 'Pending', 'projects' ), 'Closed' => __( 'Closed', 'projects' ), 'Completed' => __( 'Completed', 'projects' ), ),
