Can somebody show me what I am doing wrong on challenge task two? I have tried a number of ways and can't figure it out.

Help

app.js
var inputValue = document.getElementById('linkName');
var link = document.getElementById('link');
link = link.textContent;
inputValue = inputValue.value;
inputValue = link;
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>

You need to reverse your assignment so that you take the value from "inputValue" and put it into the text content of the link.

But you must not overwrite "link" with the current text content. You'll need that element reference to be able to access the attribute for storing the value.
