[resolved] CDN CNAME Won't Update (3 posts)

    I have maxcdn and latest wordpress and w3tc.

    When I try to update "Replace site's hostname with:" my custom domain names they do not update. It refreshes to my website and upon returning to the dashboard it errors with "A configuration issue prevents CDN from working: You need to select / create a pull zone. Specify it here."

    I'm trying to use CDN for pipelining. I know the CDN is working because I see it in page source, however it is the temporary / long URL from maxcdn.

    No other values will update and it reverts to this long URL and removes other CNAME entries upon any update.

    Note also I have cloudlfare on and hosting is namecheap. I have read that all of these play nice together, but for completeness include the info.

    Thank you very much!

    Just a post to say I updated to the latest version just pushed out, and still have the issue.

    In case this helps, I do have the following installed as well

    Karma Theme
    BulletProof Security
    Google Custom Search
    Upload Url and Path Finder
    W3 Total Cache (obviously) reporting as
    Wordpress Firewall 2 (I whitelisted the CDN IP)
    WordPress Importer
    WordPress SEO by Joost de Valk
    WP Smush.it

    Thank you.

    Please note, I deactivated my security plugins and was able to fix the issue. Thank you
