    $bp['loggedin_userid'] is the global userid for the logged in user.

    So that url you described above would be:


    <a href="<?php echo bp_core_get_userurl($bp['loggedin_userid']) ?>activity/my-friends">Your Friends Activity</a>


    Because bp_core_get_userurl() returns this:


    return $bp['root_domain'] . '/' . MEMBERS_SLUG . '/' . $ud->user_login . '/';


    bp-core.php, bp_core_get_userurl()

    Hmmm Burt – that generates http://domain.com/activity/my-friends – and obviously an error page.

    lemme try it in the browser…

    Yep. I see the problem:


    <a href="<?php global $bp; echo bp_core_get_userurl($bp['loggedin_userid']) ?>activity/my-friends">Your Friends Activity</a>


    That works. Wasn’t working for me either. I’m not trying this in a bp theme. Because I hadn’t declared that I wanted to play with $bp it resolves to nothing.

    Don’t know where you are using this but withing the scope of usage of that var you have to declare you want to use it.

    While we’re at it, Burt – what would the code be if I wanted to print the name of the currently logged in user on screen?
