Support » Plugin: W3 Total Cache » Cloudflare Extension and Compatibility

  • Resolved WPAndrew


    I noticed that there is a Cloudflare extension developed by W3 Edge for W3 Total Cache, but there is no description of it currently on their site (at least that I could easily find).

    What does it do? Does anyone know what the features are? Is it better than Cloudflare’s own plugin for WordPress? Can both plugins be active or would that just be bloat?

    Also, I am sort of new to Cloudflare, but I think from just a small sample of posts that I read that is that it seems the consensus is to keep W3 Total Cache’s caching features on, but minification off on W3 Total Cache – would that be accurate? ANy other best practices to using Cloudflare with W3 Total Cache?

    Hello @wpandrew

    Thank you for your inquiry and I am happy to assist you with this.
    W3 Total Cache fully integrates CloudFlare’s performance and security. The extension in W3 Total Cache is there to have “all in one place” so there is no need for Cloudflare plugin if you are using W3 Total Cache extension.
    To confirm, you should use either W3 Total Cache Minify or Cloudflare minify. Using both minify solutions at the same time can cause issues.
    You can check this article for assistance on how to setup Cloudflare in W3 Total Cache.
    Thank you!
