Use Mo' Variables. It will give you access to GET variables like this {get:your_key} (in your case {get:score}).

Mo' Variables has many other uses, as well!

  • @alex Is using this plugin the only way to achieve this?

  • If we're talking templates... your alternative options are 1) possibly another plugin with similar function, or 2) make your own plugin. 3) you could enable PHP in the template and use some PHP, but you are better off making a simple plugin instead or just using Mo' Variables.
