Support » Plugin: WP Cloudflare Super Page Cache » Jetpack compatibility

  • Hello,

    Today I have enabled this plugin + autoptimize as I had many problems with WP Rocket, when I send data from my desktop app to the website, mainly caused by the preloading option.

    I am also using Jetpack, only for the site accelerator option (Speed up image load time and Speed up static file load times).

    Will the plugin cause any issues with Jetpack and more importantly do you recommend using both plugins? If there is an issue with Jetpack, can I cache the images and all static files to Cloudflare, somehow? I prefer Cloudflare over Jetpack as the Cloudflare datacenter is super close to the local business.

    And my last question is not very related to the topic: I have ~5000 products in ~400 categories. I send updated prices and quantities daily from my desktop app. I don’t write directly in the database and I am using WP method. Will I have issues with some data not updated or purged? Also, how much time will the crawler need to preload the whole site, approximately, and can I control the crawling intervals?

    Really sorry for the wall of text and thank you for your efforts!

    Hi @liamz,
    First of all, I would like to say that even I use Jetpack on my sites along with this plugin.

    I am also using Jetpack, only for the site accelerator option (Speed up image load time and Speed up static file load times).

    – There is absolutely no need for you to use this Jetpack module as when you use Cloudflare all of your images will be transferred over Cloudflare’s amazing CDN network anyways. So, you don’t need another CDN network for your images. Also, I’ve seen many issues with the Jetpack’s image CDN module in many sites so I personally never use it.

    On top of it, if you also want to optimize your images on the fly, I would rather recommend you using Imagekit.io (if your monthly image bandwidth requirement is < 20 GB as in that case it will be free) otherwise simply go with Cloudflare Pro where you will get a lot more (along with amazing image optimization) just for 20$/mo.

    Will the plugin cause any issues with Jetpack and more importantly do you recommend using both plugins?

    – No the plugin doesn’t cause any issues with JetPack and yes you can use both plugins at the same times. But Jetpack is a very heavy plugin (if you enable all the modules), so I would highly recommend only enabling the modules that you need for your website.

    If there is an issue with Jetpack, can I cache the images and all static files to Cloudflare, somehow?

    – Cloudflare caches all of your static files anyways out of the box. The speciality of this plugin is you will be using Cloudflare to its full potential i.e., not ly use it for caching your static files but also caching the HTML content (the first request of your website) so when someone visits most of that static pages of your website, even the first HTML request will be served from Cloudflare CDN making your website load super fast. Please read the plugin description page, it is clearly explained there.

    I prefer Cloudflare over Jetpack as the Cloudflare datacenter is super close to the local business.

    – Cloudflare is better than anything in the market. It is the best.

    I have ~5000 products in ~400 categories. I send updated prices and quantities daily from my desktop app. I don’t write directly in the database and I am using WP method. Will I have issues with some data not updated or purged?

    – I think you are talking about WooCommerce here. If that is that case I’m the plugin settings under the third party section you will see the WooCommerce pages that you don’t want to be cached. Most WooCommerce pages are not cached out of the box as these pages are dynamic in nature so for these pages the first HTML request will bot be cached by Cloudflare and only the static files (like images, css, js) will be cached by CLoudflare.

    So, currently updated prices will not be an issue as the first request is not cached and fetched from the server directly giving the users the current price always.

    Also, how much time will the crawler need to preload the whole site, approximately, and can I control the crawling intervals?

    – It is better not to use the internal crawler to crawl your whole website as that will increase the server load a lot. I think by default it only preloads about 100 URLs at most. Moreover, as the preloaded uses cURL to preload the pages many times Cloudflare ignores cURL requests to be cached on their CDN. But the preloader does create the fallback cache when the first request is received fr an URL.
