Combinign Web HTML Files

I've begun building an ebook from my Web site and have the first page in Sigil.
I'll have to do some editing but it seems to be doable.

However, I can't figure out how to bring in and combine the next page with what I already have. I presume it would be a chapter.

Can anyone tell me how to add additional pages from my Web site to my first?

Thanks!

Right-click in the Book browser: Add Existing: html, images, fonts,stylesheets (most only add them to the 'book' (manifest), not use the IN the book. Using the Picture tool; places the picture and make the manifest entries , other than (x)HTML, the rest you may have to do some work in code view to make use of them.

There is also a program floating around on the web called Merger. It allows to combine html pages together in any order you want.

I appreciate the tip and would like to check it out. I've searched and find several programs that combine PDF files but not for html.

Do you have a link for the one you reference?

Thanks

It is referred to in the wiki at:

http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/SoftSnow_Merger

Download address: http://softsnow.griffin3.com/merger/merger.shtml

Be sure to do a little testing to make sure they end up in the order you want. I think I only combined 10 or so at a time because they didn't end up in just the order I wanted.
You will also want to keep an eye on formatting since it might change in combining pages.
