I'm spinning my wheels here and can't figure out what the next step is. Any guidance would be very appreciated. Thanks!
I'm spinning my wheels here and can't figure out what the next step is. Any guidance would be very appreciated. Thanks! You can see my attached code related to the question---hopefully I"m right so far but who knows
let inputValue = document.querySelector('input').value; let a = document.getElementById('a');
<!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>

You're close - for the sake of the challenge, you actually don't need to save the 'a' tag in a variable (you could, though). Rather than getElementById, you're going to want getElementByTagName, or querySelector again - 'a' is a tag, rather than an ID. Then, you could use .textContent to set the text value of the link. Here's one way to do it:
let inputValue = document.querySelector('input').value; document.querySelector('a').textContent = inputValue;
