Support » Plugin: Cloudflare » flexible ssl sitemaps

  • Resolved gezginorman



    I’ve recently activated flexible ssl via cloudflare plugin and it works like charm. however, as far as i understand, all of the “how to”s regarding changing the sitemaps (i use yoast for this) seems to be old, which is to say, apparently old enough to say that changing site URL from general settings under wordpress panel should result in a change in sitemap URL. but yoast’s source say that the plugin pulls protocol info from wordpress URL ( at least this is what i understand.

    so is there a practical way to have generate sitemaps for flexible ssl? or have i missed a step?

    best wishes,

  • Hi @gezginorman,

    As they are taking the links directly from WordPress it will only produce HTTP links as the CloudFlare plugin is not changing this information.
    I would suggest using the Full setting as this does not require a valid certificate on the origin but would allow you to change the settings in WordPress to HTTPS only.
    I would suggest doing the following;
    Generate a SSL certificate
    Install this on your server (This varies greatly so cannot provide a tutorial)
    Configure WordPress to use HTTPS rather than HTTP
    Update Crypto settings in CloudFlare to Full
