Modules like Better Exposed Filters can help you create great user experiences for accessing all the content you want to be found on your website using views filters. Something that I have often missed though, is the ability to have multiple exposed filter blocks, e.g. one in the sidebar, with a subset of filters, and then another one directly above the search results that provides additional filters and / or options that control the display of the search results. All that good stuff that is already built into views can only be displayed in one block. I know I'm not the only one missing this so I decided to give it a try and solve this problem in way of a module.
During development I often need to know what a fully build views query looks like. There are several ways to accomplish this, but unfortunately none of these really worked for me, so I build my own.
