Is there a pluginless way of retrieving querystring values via jQuery?

Without which method is there? and if not what plugin do you recommend?

You can use the pure JavaScript(without jQuery):

			function getParameterByName(name) 
			{ 
			  name = name.replace(/[\[]/, "\\\[").replace(/[\]]/, "\\\]"); 
			  var regexS = "[\\?&]" + name + "=([^]*)"; 
			  var regex = new RegExp(regexS); 
			  var results = regex.exec(window.location.href); 
			  if(results == null) 
			    return ""; 
			  else 
			    return decodeURIComponent(results[1].replace(/\+/g, " ")); 
			}
