I am unsure of what I am doing wrong, its working when I move the code to my own editor but not in the treehouse page.
I have re-watched the recommend video and I am unsure of what I am doing wrong?
var inputValue = document.getElementById('linkName');
<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>DOM Manipulation</title> </head> <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" /> <body> <div id="content"> <label>Link Name:</label> <input type="text" id="linkName"> <a id="link" href="https://teamtreehouse.com"></a> </div> <script src="app.js"></script> </body> </html>

If it seems to be "working", you may have misunderstood the objective. The challenge asks you to "Select the <input> element with the ID linkName and store its value in the variable inputValue."
This code selects the right element, but stores a reference to the element itself in the variable instead of the value attribute of the element.
