Need Help With IFTTT - Not Working Properly When Wordpress Index.php Is Moved To Root

    I have a Wordpress installation in a subdirectory. I followed the instructions on Wordpress.org, to move the Index.php file from the subdirectory to my root directory, so when my visitors go to my root domain, they see my blog even though it's technically installed at "www.mydomain.com/blog/".

    The problem is, in order for me to connect to my Wordpress installation with IFTTT, I need to provide them the "www.mydomain.com/blog/" even though my actual posts are located at "www.mydomain.com" instead. Even though IFTTT is technically connected to my Wordpress installation, it's apparently not seeing any new blog posts, because it's looking for them at "www.mydomain.com/blog/", which is just a 404 page.

    Anyone else figure out how to work around this? Do I need to maybe set up some special redirect for traffic coming from IFTTT? I really don't want to move my Wordpress installation all to the root level of my site. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
