I’ve never used Cloudflare before and saw on one of Cloudflare’s help pages it says it tells you how to update your website images to use Cloudflare without changing the image urls. I would share the url but it tells me I can’t publish this post with it in here.
I can’t understand that page at all, it’s so convoluted and clearly written for developers and not normal people. It’s not even simply stated like step one, take this code and put it here. It may as well be another language to me.
I can understand well written instructions… I have no problem and I have done very technical things with my website before.
I also have no idea how to bulk upload 100s of images to Cloudflare if that’s what I’m supposed to do.
I paid for the image service thinking it would auto upload my images from my website and just start serving them from Cloudflare… this is really discouraging and I could use some really simple instructions and help please!
Also, given how difficult it is to understand their instructions I’m considering just getting a refund and setting my nameservers back to how they were. I couldn’t even find a decent video tutorial on youtube… just some guy uploading his images and creating different sizes. So if you have a video tutorial that helped you do this or easy instructions for setting this up (in clear and simple language) I would appreciate it very much.
You should be good to share that link now. What help doc was that?
You can add images to cf images from your site using the API
The Community can assist in answering questions. How difficult or easy it turns out to be is a factor of how much you know starting out and how much you want to learn. Are you familiar with making API calls, if not, do you have a developer for your site that can assist?
I have no idea about API stuff… just entering the api code into sections that ask for it. That is all and no I don’t have a developer.
It shouldn’t be that hard… nor should the instructions be so unclear. It wouldn’t be that hard for someone with good communication skills to write step by step instructions that are actually clear for normal people.
I did ask questions. I asked for a direct and clear translation of the gibberish on that page (that I linked as a comment).
I also asked for a video that goes through it and shows step by step how exactly to do it. I could easily follow along on a good video.
Can you share a link to the help doc you saw? That will help me to understand what you saw and perhaps be able to interpret the gibberish.
The link on this thread above is a link to itself, you can see topic 418278 when you mouse over the link and in your address bar. (I was curious of you’d viewed the api page doc I shared or if there is another I am not familar with)
