Task 1 no longer passing?

Here's my code for this challenge, I just can't seem to see what I'm doing wrong.

let inputValue;

let input = document.querySelector('input'); inputValue = input.value;

let link = document.querySelector('#link'); inputValue = link.textContent;

app.js
let inputValue;

let input = document.querySelector('input');
inputValue = input.value;

let link = document.querySelector('#link');
inputValue = link.textContent;
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're setting the inputValue to the value of the A tag's text content instead of the A tag text content to the value of inputValue.

This would be a more acceptable solution...

let inputValue = document.querySelector('#linkName').value;
document.querySelector('#link').textContent = inputValue;
