Instead of the fixed text value '#linkName', the instructions ask you to set the text content to the value you previously stored in the variable inputValue.

Also, it's not a good idea to rely on the browser to provide a variable that points to the anchor element for you (in this case, named "link"). This behavior isn't guaranteed to be in all browsers or in future browser versions.
