A debugging/development tool that displays the name of the current_component and the current_action as found in the $bp global.
This debugging/development tool displays names of the current_component and the current_action as extracted from the $bp Global. Sometimes action names don't exist or they might not match the displayed link, so its good to know what is going on. Aditionally Buddypress has its own component and action names for the regular wordpress pages and blog posts, seing how this all works will enable you to write conditionals to display different content for each component. With this tool it is easy to see what those variables are. It might seem unnecessary but believe me it helps. I never knew that when you go to your profile page the component=activity and the action=just-me, until I created this simple tool.
