Tell us what’s happening:

In the Exercise url value is missing . Therefore there is no place to send post request .

Your code so far


<script>
  document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded',function(){
    document.getElementById('sendMessage').onclick=function(){
    
      var userName=document.getElementById('name').value;
      // Add your code below this line
      req=new XMLHttpRequest();
req.open("POST",url,true);
req.setRequestHeader('Content-Type','text/plain');
req.onreadystatechange=function(){
  if(req.readyState==4 && req.status==200){
    document.getElementsByClassName('message')[0].innerHTML=req.responseText;
  }
};
req.send(userName);
      
      // Add your code above this line
    };
  });
</script>
