Is the CloudFlare Wordpress plugin & W3TC CloudFlare Extension necessary?


Hello again,

In an effort to continue to optimize I’m trying to eliminate plugins and such that I do not need. It seems to me that that CloudFlare Wordpress Plugin and the W3TC Plugin really just allow you to change settings without having to log in via the web, but you can also do that though cpanel if you want. I was able to find a bit of info that says the Extension will fix a user ip address issue, and the plugin has a special spam setting, but thats all I could find.

Are these two items necessary?
Also will it create problems if you are also signed into cloudflare via cpanel? I had duplicate dns records according to cloudflare for a couple days, then it seemed to have fixed itself.

I appreciate any info there is on this! Thanks.
