Preguntas frecuentes

Does this plugin affect non-SSL traffic?

No. It only comes into play when Cloudflare is serving HTTPS traffic from your site.

Should I change my WordPress Site URL to HTTPS?

No – there is no need. Use Cloudflare’s pages rules to redirect your visitors. You can then safely turn off SSL whenever you want from within Cloudflare and your WordPress site will still load on HTTP.

What happens if I disable this plugin AFTER enabling Flexible SSL on Cloudflare?

Your WordPress site will not load on HTTPS/SSL. You will create an infinite loop loading problem and the only way to solve this is to turn off SSL redirects within Cloudflare.

Does I need this plugin if I use Cloudflare FULL or Strict SSL?

No. It is designed only to assist with Flexible SSL.

I don't need to change any settings from my previous non-SSL site, just install this plug-ins with Cloudflare Flexible SSL works well. My website host was an Apple MacMini 2010 with macOS Server.

It took a while to find a plugin that would allow us to use Cloudflare on our WordPress sites - this is the one. As soon as I installed it, the problem ended and everything has worked perfectly since. We have it on all 8 of our WordPress sites, and will keep using it as we convert more of our websites to WordPress.

I've been using this for a while on several sites. Now since a plugin contributor got added and touting Shield Security, when I dismiss that message, deactivate, and completely delete, my site wont work and get into infinite loop again. TBH, this plugin isn't even needed anymore, but whatever. Leaving at 1 star until you fix. Once you fix, I'll edit the review.
