Hey Jeriah!

So, your problem here is that you're using 'document.getElementsByClassName()' which returns an array-like object of all child elements which have all of the given class names.

The reason you're getting this error, is because you're adding an event listener to your 'myButton' const which is actually an array-like object.

Before you change your code, try logging the 'myButton' const to the console so you can see exactly what 'document.getElementsByClassName' is doing.

Change your code to mine below and it should work.

const myButton = document.getElementsByClassName("myButton");
console.log(myButton[0]);

myButton[0].addEventListener("click", () => {
  title.style.color = input.value;
});

I hope this helps!
