Im new to cloud flare and have been interested to try their services. I was previously using DNS via Amazon Route 53 and moved my DNS over to Cloudflare yesterday at the registrar level. I have installed the Cloudflare Wordpress App and applied default settings.
Since setting up Cloudflare my site is taking between 5-10 seconds to load fully. HTML and some CSS seems to load quickly but images and some java seem to take a while, including Google Adsense.
You said slow, a timeout is not slow. A timeout is easy to explain as you most likely try to connect to a proxied host and that cannot work. You need to connect via the IP or via an unproxied hostname.
Which images? There is one image on your site that doesnt load and that is linked via an IP address.
CSS loads fine, but images are now taking about 20 seconds to load. This has only happened since moving to Cloudflare for CDN and caching. Is there some reasonable way i can test to see what the issue may be?
Just a thought, i realise im also running hummingbird plugin, which also has some cache settings. Should i be running both CF and HB at the same time?
