Looking to learn something new?
Select the <input> element with the ID linkName and store its value in the variable inputValue.
guys please help i don't know where i'm going wrong my code is:
var inputValue=document.querySelector('input [input=type]');
<!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>

Hey, no worries, I stumbled through this one as well but if you persevere you'll get it!
It should look like this:
var inputValue = document.getElementById("linkName").value;
First you select an element with the ID of linkName. ( You don't need to specifiy it again with a # with elementById) Secondly, they ask you to get it's value, to get the value of that input field you use .value.
If there's anything else you don't get, feel free to comment.

I wish the person who assigns these exercises assigned only stuff that was covered in the lessons. It is just a basic pedagogical approach, common sense.

For first part... this is what I got:
/const inputValue = document.querySelector('input').value;
it should be
let inputValue = document.getElementById("linkText").value;
