      Hi ReadUp-

      So this is an Interesting Twist in Importation:

      Apparently if I Import the Word of the Day from Word Genius (which I Imagine Is Beneficial Here; somehow...or maybe not. Lol.) the New Word post piggy-backs and replaces the previous word post (which could make Ideally just one constant estuary of words into One Thread?). Interesting Development Discovery Here.

      Today: definition currently above instead of Ambit previously Menology Audio for word of the day [mə-NAL-ə-jee] Part of speech: noun Origin: Greek, early 18th century

        Ah, I think I see what the problem is. I wasn't able to complete the article on iOS due to a bug with the content parser. When viewing the article in a browser the web site's cookie disclaimer notice is incorrectly identified as the article content. This is a known issue that usually happens with really short articles and still needs to be fixed.

        In the mean time at least it looks like their monthly roundup posts are parsed correctly! For instance here is the December one: https://www.wordgenius.com/word-of-the-day-roundup-december-2020/X-ITqtIJbQAHQZQ0

      Note: Since this Is A Happy Accident of a Collaborative Daily Word Post... I Am Curious if Any One of Us can Import the Word of the Day Here. I am (possibly incorrectly?) assuming We Can... if anyone is Interested. Just Sayin’ 🍍💗☮️
