Email obfuscation off, Even added a page rule for to disable it, still showing up in GTMetrix


Everything is disabled and I have purged the cache for the site. Even after waiting a dozen minutes or so, this item is still showing up… and adding almost 1 sec to my page load time! That’s a huge hit for me… Need help asap.

How do I stop this /cloudflare-static/email-decode.min.js from being referenced?


I can confirm it’s loading in the site…and you don’t want it to.

I know you’ve tried some of these:

  1. Check for any Cloudflare Apps that you may be running.
  2. Double-check the ScrapeShield settings page
  3. Make sure you’re on the correct Cloudflare account for that domain (some people have the same domain on two accounts). Active name servers are Bob and Dell

If all else fails:
Login to Cloudflare and then contact Cloudflare Support


I have done all of the above to no avail. I contacted support. Hopefully we get a resolution I can share! This is over 1 sec in load time, what a massive waste!


Interesting, this is the URL I am testing:

And I am still seeing the load time issues:

This was from a different browser with a clean cache.


This site is not going through Cloudflare. I don’t know why the cdn-cgi link is showing up (hardcoded in the site perhaps?) but the DNS record doesn’t resolve to Cloudflare’s IPs and I don’t see any Cloudflare headers.


That it is hardcoded is a possibility. I am good with HTML but wp is, for the most part, php based. If anyone has a way identifying the script containing this ref I would love to delete it.


Oh, geez. That should have been obvious from the headers. Good thing we have you around to point out the obvious things we miss. :rofl:


@cscharff I found a raw HTML element with the reference. The underlying javascript functioned fine without the reference. Great catch and greatly appreciated sir!
