Tried playing around with it and it wont work. I tried 'a.link' also
var inputValue = document.getElementById('linkName').value; inputValue = document.getElementById('link').textContent;
<!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 incredibly close -- the only issue is the order in your assignment on the second line.
The left side of the assignment operator is what a value will be assigned to, the right side is the value being assigned. To give
document.getElementById('link').textContent the value from
inputValue you just need to swap around the order:
document.getElementById('link').textContent = inputValue;
