NUB, I can not get a simple IFTTT to work with my new Photon

Hi,
I’m a NUB and just wanted to try an IFTTT event with my new Photon. I simple want to flash the on board led when a button widget is clicked on my phone. What am I doing wrong, this seems like it should be so simple? But it does not work for me. Can anyone give me some guidance with this please?

try:

Particle.subscribe("FF9001", myHandler, MY_DEVICES);

That worked! Thank you for the help, I knew it must have been something simple. But I’m not sure that I understand why that worked. Is it because there is a chance that someone else has a “FF9001” event and they are controlling that event with that name? Because I would think that adding “MY_DEVICES” would be more restrictive and should really make no difference.

which did you pick?
