Disable Childtheme Folder

Hi Community,

I am completely new to Cloudflare. I just installed it onto my website. I followed an article on how to install it and choose the right settings with W3 Total Cache and Cloudflare. My only question is…

I have a custom built page that I’ve added to my Child Theme Folder and wanted to find out if I can disable the child theme from Auto Minify(HTML,CSS,JS)? When I deselect all 3 options my http://elysian-management.com/voices.html filtering is correct. But when I select all 3 options it messes up my filtering. Does having all 3 options selected make a huge difference to page load?

Sorry I am completely new to this and still learning.
Thanks for reading.


You can add a Page Rule to not minify CSS and JS from that folder. But the HTML is in your pages’ URLs, not the theme folder, so your rule won’t apply to that.

Page Rule Match: elysian.management.com/wp-content/themes/CHILDTHEME/*
Add setting: Auto Minify (and leave the checkboxes blank).

I’m not entirely sure the Page Rule will trigger before the global Minify Setting, but give it a try.

Hi @sdayman,

I added the Page Rule, but its not working. Why would activing the SSL to flexible affect my custom font?

I have installed an external SSL certificate but its not showing on the site. I asked in the community here Having Issues with Activating External SSL . not sure if this affect the font because its not secure? I am super confused.

Hope you can help.
