ReferenceError: Can't find variable: input
Ive inserted the code: const inputValue = document.querySelector( input );
And I keep getting the error message: ReferenceError: Can't find variable: input I've tried various different ways and I keep getting different error messages. I simply fail to see how to continue with this task in a way that differs enough from this. If Im doing something wrong please tell me, because I have no Idea what to do now.
const inputValue = document.querySelector( input );
<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>DOM Manipulation</title> </head> <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" /> <body> <div id="content"> <label for="linkText">Link Text:</label> <input type="text" id="linkText" value="sample text"> <p class="info"></p> </div> <script src="app.js"></script> </body> </html>

There are 2 issues with your code. First, querySelector takes a string as a parameter, and
input without quotes around it makes it a variable, so to select an element you want:
const inputValue = document.querySelector('input');
I'll point out that the challenge asks for the value of the input element, so you'll have to pull that afterwards, or you can do it in the same statement with:
const inputValue = document.querySelector('input').value;
