    I know when things can be triggered using IFTTT you can send a message to AutoRemote as a response. Is it possible to send a file in that message too like you would to send a file from Eventghost to AutoRemote?

    Every time I update my Facebook profile picture I'd like IFTTT to send the updated profile picture to AutoRemote so Tasker can resize it and save it for a ZooperWidget on the homescreen. Is this possible?

    Only if that file has a publicly accessible URL somewhere. Does it?

    Ok, then send the send a message like "zooperwidgetimage=:=" followed by the file URL then in the Task you'll have the URL in %arcomm

    Hope this helps! :)

    I actually tried this before but the url gets cut off towards the end because there is a "&" in the link. Is there a way I could include a "&" in the message?

    In IFTTT surround the URL with <<<>>> to overcome that :)

    Use

    Code (Text):
    <<<http://URL_HERE>>>
    And it should work :)
