what if, after the xyz0002 part of the URL there was some more text, so he had to concatenate the string could you still do that in wget in the same way?

I assume you mean something like:
Code:
wget -r -np -nd -A "*.jpg" http://www.domain.com/${myvar1}/images/${myvar2}/personal/
Am I right? You can just keep throwing in text and variables all you want. Just make sure you put the variables in {} so the shell knows where the variable name ends and the rest of the text begins.
