Unable to setup GitHub auto-build on commit

I have a public GitHub repository setup with my AppVeyor account. When I commit to the repo, AppVeyor does not trigger an auto-build. I imagine I need to do something to get this working. I tried adding the AppVeyor webhook URL to the GitHub repo, but it always comes back with {"message":"Value cannot be null.\r\nParameter name: s"}. So my question is--how do I get this setup correctly?

    Hi Shane,

    Make sure you have selected application/x-www-form-urlencoded for webhook Content type.

    That did it! Thanks so much (GitHub was set to application/json).
