Works well enough
By , for WP 4.5.3

This works are defined. Sometimes Cache seems to give issues but I am not sure if this is the Cloudflare or W3 Cache. I clear both and seem to work fine.

I tried it out, set everything up proper. Made my site load 2s slower. If you are going to spend money may as well go maxcdn.

Bad Experience
By , for WP 4.5.2

I have bad experience for this plugin, slow my wordpress admin panel always disconnected even my site.

Converts https-links to http-link using IE
By , for WP 4.5

I've used Cloudflare several months, and it did speed up my page quite a bit. But I had to deactivate this plugin. The reason is that Cloudflare converts all my https-links to http-links. The problem occurs in IE, but not in Chrome, Opera or Firefox.

For several months I've tried to have the Cloudflare support team help to fix this, but their support is not very good. I've experienced that almost every time their returning to me there is a new person, that I have to explain the problem again. And where the earlier person trying to figure out what is the reason for this, the new person does'nt seem to take this into consideration and really doesn't care, it seems. I've given up to try having this fixed.

The suggestion from Cloudflare support team in the beginning was to use some of their page rules. This did not in any way solve this issue. This very same issue has also been addressed in 2015 as well:

I've addressed this to Cloudflare support on this thread as well:
https://wordpress.org/support/topic/https-redirects-to-paypal-in-ie-changes-to-http?replies=2

with no support at all.

But Cloudflare was not able to solve the problem back then either. I've contacted Chad Warner and he said he did'nt even get a respond on his support issue.

The conclusion is that Cloudflare has a problem for all using https-links as well as http-links on a page. Any linking to https pages such as paypal, returns a link to Paypals home page instead of the shopping cart.

Don't use it if you have any kind of shopping solution on your page.

Does well what it does...

This does what it does quite well, and when there is an issue it gets fixed rather promptly...

Plugin surprisingly bad
By , for WP 4.4.2

I love Cloudflare. I reccomend it to anyone with a self hosted website. Their blog and support articles reccomend using this article with WordPress sites, so natually I installed it. But I noticed it creates a problem with urls. Some of the links on my site don't use https. It took me a long time to track down the issue, but as it turns out all I had to do was disable this plugin. Strangely enough it was making my sites have http:// links when using https:// . Not sure why, but since there are other ways to restore visitor IPs, I'm looking into other options at this point.

Causing more problems than it's fixing
By ,

This plugin seems like a good idea but it seems to be causing problems on my sites. I ended up having to disable it completely. Sorry to say, it didn't work out for me.

DON*T TOUCH THIS!

They won't let you leave - you have to contact support to cancel your account and they are unbelievable unhelpful!

Using CloudFlare?
By , for WP 4.3.1

If you use CloudFlare this plugin is a must have. With that said I think it can be improved quite a bit.
