why is this not working?

Hey Everyone,

I am not able to understand why the challenge is showing an error. I have tried it multiple times and it keeps showing the same error. I have tried using a document.querySelector as well as there is only one input element in the code and still it shows error. Any help would be useful.

thank you.

regards, Chintan.

app.js
var inputValue = document.getElementById("linkName");
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>

Hey Chintan Ray , your are on the right way .

This peace of code is correct , you only forget to select the value of the input field

var inputValue = document.getElementById("linkName");

var inputValue = document.getElementById("linkName").value;
