Hell I'm not even sure how to explain this. Here goes

I have figured out how to get www.domainname.com/pagename.html (http://www.domainname.com/pagename.html)

but what i can't seem to figure out is how to get this part

domainname.com/pagename/newpage.html (http://www.domainname.com/pagename/newpage.html)

Example if I wanted to add a videos page I would do this

domainname.com/videos.html

but if i wanted to add another page related to videos, I want to 'connect' it to the Video page. so that it looks like this domainname.com/videos/nameofvideo.html

How do i go about doing that?

Not sure I follow you but...

You have your video page which as you have correctly shown you link up as domainname.com/videos.html

So now you want a page off that videos page, you simply do:

domainname.com/nameofvideo.html and link to it from that page or any other page.

Not exactly what i meant, but it is the easiest option.

I mean an extended url For example if you go to nba.com and search for player profiles. The players page looks like this http://www.nba.com/playerfile/gilbert_arenas/index.html

it doesn't say nba.com/gilbertarenas.html

and thats how I want it to look on my site

domainname.com/pagename/newpage.html (http://www.domainname.com/pagename/newpage.html)

not domainname.com/newpage.html

Like i said it is easier to just do it the way you said.

The way you are talking about is by creating a folder.

So you create a folder called 'players'

then inside that folder you create pages with the player names.

so the link then would be domainname.com/players/johnsmith.html (http://www.domainname.com/pagename/newpage.html)

then to publish those pages you just publish to the folder thus:

public_html/players

ok so I'd go to controlpanel and into File manager create a folder called "players"

So to create the page "players" how do I name the file, Players?

folder = players
page = name 1
...... = name 2

etc...................

then in folder public_html/players you have your pages named after each player.

I dont have the problem............you do.

Just take a look back at Marincky' s last answer to you and I thought that he had explained it rather well.

I just tried to simplify it for you with a couple of examples.

Start of with your normal everyday

public_html directory (your main folder)

within that folder you have created another folder called
players

Now to publish different player pages you publish to:

public_html/player (forget the page name at this stage)

publish each different players page the same way.

NOW.....to link to player johnsmith

you create this link:

http://yourwebsitename.xxx/players/johnsmith.html

repeat the same link but change the name at the end for all the other player pages that you have saved with different names.
