    about query variables: http://codex.wordpress.org/Glossary#Q

    is there a way to send query variables to a category template (or any template) with an URL query variable?

    i am using a query string to display a year's worth of posts in a specific category; but i want to be able to get to next/previous years. (and date archives are not working to limit to one category.)

    in case anyone ELSE was wondering.

    i wanted to pass variables to a page: like this:

    http://yoursite.com/pagename/?tellme=hello

    but it was not displaying. i needed this code in the page template:

    <?php
    $tellme= $_GET['tellme'];
    echo 'tellme ' . $tellme;
    ?>

    i'd love to add this to the codex, but where?
