Set the text content of the a tag to be the value stored in the variable inputValue.

I don't know what I'm doing wrong... Can someone one just tell me so I can use the 2 hours that I have to work on coding on something other than 1 question?

let inputValue = linkName.value;

<!DOCTYPE html>
        <title>DOM Manipulation</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />
        <div id="content">
            <label>Link Name:</label>
            <input type="text" id="linkName">
            <a id="link" href="https://teamtreehouse.com"></a>
        <script src="app.js"></script>

Hey Jordan! The challenge is asking you to set the content of the a tag to whatever is stored inside the variable input variable, this could be done like this:

let inputValue = linkName.value;
link.textContent = inputValue;

Hope this helps!
