Having done tests on four possible cases, these are the results: Left in inbox unopened - picked up by the trigger Left in inbox opened - picked up Archived unopened - not picked up Archived opened - not picked up So the relevant factor is whether the email is still in the inbox. You can take a look at it, but not archive it otherwise it won't be picked ...

Zapier co-founder here, for anyone else curious about how you might do this yourself, Github has really killer API docs which show how to use their API to read/create your gists. Its kind of annoying as you'll have to "poll" for new entries and compare them across time, but it isn't infeasible. Using a standar RSS reader like Google reader is a simple ...

I contacted IFTTT support and they told me that this is currently not possible (within IFTTT) but that they'll take it as feedback for future enhancements. So, the answer would appear to be "you can't". I'd love to see some ideas for alternatives using a third-party solution.

It isn't working because the http://plu.sr site is down. Try using a different Google+ RSS Feed provider such as http://googleplusrss.nodester.com You just add you Google+ ID to the end of the URL - like this > http://googleplusrss.nodester.com/103156295300828440975

After testing many different solutions (see my question above for more information), I discarded my approach to use Email. Instead I've subscribed to the RSS feeds of the newsletters and use IFTTT recipes to automatically save new feed items to Pocket. Subscribe to the feed(s) via RSS Create a new IFTTT recipe Choose Feed trigger channel Choose New feed ...

It is not possible to make a request like this to your external site. The site must be one of the services featured on the IFTTT page.

As the only way ifttt.com can post to Wordpress, is using the XML-RPC API, and that API currently doesn't support supplying custom post type while calling insert post methods(will support from 3.4), you can make use of the filter wp_insert_post_data. I accomplished that last month while building a hack. Here is a hack that would work the way you want, just ...

At the bottom of the settings page there is a link: I’d like to deactivate my account. (You can get to the settings page by clicking your account name in the upper right corner then choosing "Settings".) They note on the subsequent page that Deactivating your IFTTT account is permanent and cannot be undone. Enter your password to complete the ...

[Further updates to this answer added below the original answer on 4th January 2013] If all you're looking to do is push new articles to dropbox, you could base your recipe on this one: https://ifttt.com/recipes/59335 From your recipe it looks like you're trying to append each new article to a text file but that you're also trying to create a new file title ...

try this Go to http://page2rss.com Paste the page address you wish to monitor in the "Page URL to RSS" bar Copy the RSS Feed URL from "To receive updates for this page in RSS format copy-paste this link into your feed reader." or from the "Subscribe to Feed" on the right hand side of the page. Use this link in IFTTT RSS Trigger. Not sure how instant it ...

I had a problem once with an IFTTT task and I wrote to them. It was fixed within a day. So why don't you drop a mail to support@ifttt.com with your recipe ID and see what they have to say about this.

There is a clear option for using your Facebook Page while creating a recipe. I am not sure if you tried that.

As mentioned in How do I connect Google + with Twitter? the lack of full read/write API for Google+ means that you can't directly tweet to G+ as of yet. However, there are browser extensions and third-party services that allow you to cross-post. Google+Tweet allows you to integrate Twitter into your Google Plus account. Certain applications, such as ...

So the awesome guys at IFTTT sorted this out for me: [embed]{{FlickrUrl}}[/embed]<br> {{Description}} The [embed] tags were the answer !

It's true that IFTTT's GTalk channel doesn't work with Hangouts, but I found a similar service, Zapier, that does. It's geared more towards business users, so the connected services include more service apps and less social media, and the free version is limited to 5 recepies (or Zaps), but it's something.


3

No, it's not the same as Hangouts. Gtalk is more or less replaced by Hangouts. The IFTTT channel was quite limited in any case, but it won't work with Hangouts at all.

The short answer is: no, you can't do this. The long answer: IFTTT does not have a regular expression scraper, at least as of this tweet: https://twitter.com/grmeyer/status/240888420677873664 IFTTT does not legitimately let you create your own THIS conditions or THAT actions. Illegitimately, you can use https://github.com/captn3m0/ifttt-webhook to ...

Tasks do poll for trigger data every 15 minutes officially, but there's some nuance to this that might be helpful to people who don't work with web services. Polling means requesting new info periodically. Every IFTTT recipe has two sides - the If This (trigger) side, and the Then That (action) side. The trigger represents the search for something to ...

This varies depending on the type of channel being used. Although the official answer is that tasks poll for new trigger data every 15 minutes. anyone who has actually used their service will know this is obviously wrong in many cases. Here is what I have found for the time it takes for the trigger to initiate the task: SMS (texting your IFTTT ...

IFTTT states in their help file: Personal Recipes check for new Trigger data every 15 minutes. Some Recipes have “Quick Triggers” that will run as soon as they receive Trigger data. Quick Triggers can be identified by a lightning bolt icon. So for setting up a recipe based on a WeMo switch to only fire every 30 minutes you'd have to set up a service in ...

After some research, here's what I did, maybe there's a better way. With IFTTT, create a this rule for a RSS feed and add this feed from Delicious: http://feeds.delicious.com/v2/rss/{user} Then, that rule may be whatever you like, mine was Pocket.

You could do this via another method though. write a php script that goes and fetches new items from the tumblr rss and process it, no need to use IFTTT.com

Looks like there's a channel for GMail that you can setup in addition to using the email address associated with your account. You could probably send the notification to a GMail account and use that to do some filtering and routing of the messages for you.

I emailed IFTTT support about this and here's what they said: Really cool idea! This isn’t currently possible, but we’ll keep it in mind. Thanks for sharing your feedback. Your Recipe will check your feed every ≈15 minutes for new information. I hope that clears things up. If you have any further questions, please let me know. I know that ...

The short answer is no, IFTTT cannot do this. You can have IFTTT send you an email. You can also send IFTTT an email to their email address. But you cannot have IFTTT monitor your email traffic. I would try using filters on your email to highlight emails sent from this person with a specific subject, which is definitely possible - doing so on particular ...

If all you really want is to send an email to a group of addresses when a new blog post gets published, I suggest you do not use IFTTT for that. Do this instead: Set up a Google Group and add all the addresses that you want to receive the email. Make sure no-reply@blogger.com can send mail to the group. Go to your blog's Settings → Mobile and email ...

I had the same issue while activating the Gtalk channel, here's how I solved it: Just waited a couple of minutes (like 10) after adding the bot@ifttt.com to my contact list, and suddenly the bot was online, then after 5 mins it was offline again (I was multitasking so I missed that chance to press the "Send Pin" button), so I waited again, and it went ...

It's upto ifttt how they preprocess the string before posting on facebook. You can not do anything about it. Emails are often html formatted and Facebook doesn't support html, so it can be presumed that they are stripping the email off special characters.

I had the same problem. Just use the message option instead of posting a link and add the title and the link, simple as that. I am sharing my recipe: https://ifttt.com/recipes/114206
