    any advice on setting up ecStatic for use with CloudFlare?

    my host is using mod_cloudflare, so apparently i don't need the WP CloudFlare plugin

    The only thing I know about CloudFlare is from an earlier support request...

    I don't know if the problem was CloudFlare or something else.

    If things are working for you with the plugin, then maybe they'll work via your provider, but I really don't know.

    It's a caching program, right?

    it is a CDN of sorts, but not exactly. but yeah, basically it caches some content around the globe, but also adds some really nice security features. you can use it free btw

    anyway, by the logs it looks like ecStatic and CloudFlare work flawlessly together - i'm seeing the actual request IP's, not the CloudFlare IP's

    fyi, i think one will either need the apache module 'mod_cloudflare' running, or install the ClopudFlare plugin for WP, else they will probably see mostly the CF IP's
