Re: Electrical lighting problem - extension light is always on....?
The light that's on constantly is connected to a constant feed ( which is likely for the entire circuit ) instead of the switched feed. That constant feed would end and be one of 2 wires at the switch --- the other wire from the switch would be the switched feed to the lights.

We can't see over the internet what colour and how many conductors and where they go to be able to specifically say what wire is what and which one to connect to which other.
You know one light is being controlled by the switch -- you just need to find the correct wire that goes to the other light and connect them together.
Tip --- for novice DIYers changing electrical fixtures ---- mark the wires or make a sketch on a sheet of paper ** BEFORE ** disconnecting them.
This will help reconnecting things in proper order and greatly reducing problems like this.
