Is it okay to add all of your HTML files into a folder like you do for images and css files?

For example:

CSS style.css IMG profile.png taco.jpg HTML index.html contact.html

Hi Connor, In my experience i never do that and the reason for that is because the index.html file has to be in the main directory, whether is in your host (public directory) or www folder in your local host, otherwise will not display the main page which is the one who can link with the other files. maybe theres a script to do that but never tried. for css, java script, img, etc is a good practice to segment those in independent folders.

Yes you can add but if you have a big project then you should use image / files / css /js files with individual folders
