You cut off the error message which might have been helpful

Two things to fix in your code:

const addItemButton = document.querySelector('input.addItemButton');
//should be
const addItemButton = document.querySelector('button.addItemButton');
//and
 let ul = document.getElementByTagName('ul')[0];
//should be getElements with an s
 let ul = document.getElementsByTagName('ul')[0];

Kris Thanks so much I really appreciate it
