W3 Total Cache
W3 Total Cache and Cloudflare (2 posts)

    The question is whether Cloudflare benefits are in addition to W3TC benefits or are they mutually exclusive. Are there be advantages to using one versus the other or are the benefits cumulative? For example, are there advantages to using W3TC for page caching and Cloudflare for minifying, etc.? I'd appreciate it if someone can enlighten me. TIA.

    You will find that they are complementary services, so you should see benefits with both active.

    "CloudFlare for minifying"
    Both services have a minify option available & you would want to choose one or the other. Enabling both minify options often breaks things on your site & you don't want to do that.

    In addition to the CDN component with CloudFlare, you will also get a security layer for your site as well.
