EWWW Image Optimizer
Not friendly with CloudFlare & W3 Total Cache. (6 posts)

    A general warning to those using CloudFlare with W3 Total Cache, employing this plugin broke my site twice. I was trying to optimize images already in my NextGen galleries & it'd go to work for like 5 min and then it'd throw my entire site offline, had to delete the plugin files via FTP and it was fine after.

    Nothing against this plugin as it maybe great but these 3 (or some combo of the 2) is a bad mix.

    I've had issues with W3TC and cloudflare, often with using the minify features of one or the other, especially when it comes to javascript. There isn't much javascript in the EWWW IO plugin, but perhaps that may be the culprit.

    Also, you should try putting an exclusion in w3tc that doesn't let it cache the admin pages. They should never be handled by w3tc anyway.

    i am having the exact same problem.
    had CloudFlare & WP Super Cache running on my site and now my Nextgen galleries are all dead.

    I turned off WP Super Cache completely (since CloudFlare seemed like a bigger monster to turn off.

    Do you guys have any tips on how to tell Cloud Flare not to cache the admin pages? and if you think that will affect the slideshow on my site?

    Don't re-use someone else's thread. Start a new one, and if you think this is related, link to it.
