Passing parameters to another page in ASP.NET

I'm fairly new to ASP.NET.  I have a simple web album site where I have links on the first page that link to specific web albums.  The link to a given web album passes the album name along to the next PHP script in the URL, for example, href="http://www.jamezzz.com/photos/thumbs.php?album=Hawaii".

So now in ASP.NET I use a Repeater to create the list of links to my albums.  Question can I still just pass the album name along in the navigationURL like I did in my PHP scripts?  And how to a access that parameter in my thumbs.aspx? I know there are other ways of doing this too, but I'm really curious what would be roughly equivalent to my PHP scripts.

I'm sure this is an easy one...thanks any help offered!

You can still pass paremeters in the URL (this is just one way of passing parameters) using ASP.NET - in name and value pairs- You do that in the following form: www.yoursite.com/page.aspx?name1=value1&name2=value2

You access the parameters using the Request object:

variable1 = Request.QueryString["name1"];

and so on...

Hope this helps...
