[resolved] Any issues with Cloudflare (6 posts)

    Hi,

    I wanted to know if there were any issues with working with Cloudflare. I know one shouldn't operate two cache plugins at once as that could seriously muck things up.

    Anyone?

    Really haven't seen any issues. Wordfence is actually a security solution for your site, so you do want to make sure that nothing is blocking requests from CloudFlare's IPs in any plugin you use.

    You should probably also make sure you have mod_cloudflare or the CloudFlare WordPress plugin installed (restore visitor IP at the server or WordPress level).

    Thanks for getting back to me. It is just that Wordfence now has caching and wanted to know how that would affect Cloudflare.

    I would like a clarification from the plugin author on this as well. I – and many of my clients – use Cloudflare as well.

    Thanks in advance!

    Just to chime in, I would also like to hear from the author about Cloudflare and the Falcon engine together...

    Author here.

    Thanks damoncloudflare, really appreciate you posting.

    We still fully support sites behind Cloudflare and Falcon should work just fine because it's doing server-side caching and Cloudflare won't know any difference.

    Regards,

    Mark.
