I'm having trouble understanding this challenge.
This challenge asks for you to select the <input> element with the ID "linkName" and store its value inside the variable inputValue. I don't understand what I'm doing wrong, or perhaps I'm just not understanding what the challenge wants? Could somebody just point me in the right direction? Thanks!
var inputValue = document.getElementById('linkName');

You're close. What your current code is getting is the element itself.
It's asking for the value within the input element. e.g. looking for value variable.
In the code you wont' see it since it'll be pulled from whatever a user types in.
