Not sure what Whats wrong here!

I reviewed the video as a refresher but this is what I got.

app.js
let inputValue = document..getElementById('linkName');
index.html
<!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>

The two dots in a row between "document" and "getElementById" are not proper syntax.

Also, the instructions ask you to get the value of the element, instead of a reference to the element itself.
