Support » Plugin: Jetpack - WP Security, Backup, Speed, & Growth » Is Cloudflare Polish and Imagify compatible with Jetpack’s Accelerator?

  • Resolved T4G



    I was just wondering if Cloudflare’s Polish setting – “Improve image load time by optimizing images hosted on your domain. Optionally, the WebP image codec can be used with supported clients for additional performance benefits.” – is compatible with the Jetpack Accelerator?

    I also wonder if Imagify was also compatible? Would the images being served and compressed by Accelerator overrule Cloudflare and/or Imagify compression/optimization?

    Not 100% sure about Cloudflare, however. I know they optimize it when an image is fetched from our origin but it wouldn’t be fetched from our origin if it is served by Jetpack Accelerator? Unsure on how that would work exactly.

    Best regards,

    Hi Tug,

    I have seen users using Cloudflare’s Polish with Jetpack and no compatibility issue so far. However, if you are using Jetpack Site acceleration then I would not recommend enabling the WebP option in Cloudflare’s Polish because Jetpack detects when a site visitor browses your site using a browser that supports WebP (like Chrome) and serves them images that have been optimized to use the WebP format.

    When you will enable the site accelerator, the images will be server from our CDN and you will notice or a similar URL before your image URL. Instead of compressing the image, we serve them from our CDN which also speeds up the loading time. While there is no issue in using both Cloudflare’s Polish and Jetpack Site accelerator but I would recommend you to disable the Polish if you are enabling the accelerator in Jetpack. Your main purpose can be achieved by Jetpack but the choice is always yours. The same applies to Imagify and Jetpack too.
