Idk why my answer is not working. Please help me :/
Why is my answer not working?
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>
Your code saves the html input element in the variable inputValue. The challenge asks you to save only the value of this input element. All you have to do is to extract the value of this input element and assign it to the inputValue.
var inputValue = document.getElementById('linkName').value;
Great! Thanks for the help Martin :D
