query_posts() and $query_string problem

  • Hello everybody, I got a question concerning the $query_string variable.

    What I want to do is: i want to exclude one category from all of my archive pages. According to the Codex I just have to make a function call like this in my archive.php:

    query_posts($query_string . &cat=-3);

    This works to some degree: category 3 is excluded but the loop now always shows the same entries, no matter which category I am browsing to. I guess this is because $query_string is always empty (tested it with an echo statement on several pages/posts).

    Do I need to call a global first to make this work? Or is this not supposed to work that way? Would be glad if you could help me. Thanks
