How is the "link" parameter incorrect in this case? How do I select the "a" link? Wouldn't it be by selecting the "link" ID?..So confused
const myElement = document.getElementById('link') var inputValue = myElement.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>

Your selection for task 2 will work. But your assignment on the following line is backwards. The task wants you to assign inputValue to myElement.textContent - not the other way around. You also need to keep your code from task 1.

You're pretty close, but there's two issues:
- the instructions ask for "element with the ID linkName", but this code selects the id "link" instead
- the user's entry in an <input> element is not in the "textContent" but in the "value"
That will get you past task 1. Then when you get to task 2, remember the instructions warning: "Important: In each task of this code challenge, the code you write should be added to the code from the previous task." So you'll leave the task 1 code there and add more to select the other element and assign it using the value you got in task 1.
