New to Clouflare - Please help with speed & caching



Under the speed option, I have polish set to lossless, mirage to on and rocket loader to on. When I run an audit in chrome, it appears that none of these applied features are working.

Also, the webpage service I use does not allow access to htaccess, so under the caching option I have caching level set to standard and expiration to one day. Again in the chrome audit it looks like there is no caching happening.

If any of this sounds familiar to anyone who has been down this road before and you can offer some advise, I would be most appreciative.



Is the subdomain with a :orange: in the DNS page?

  • and www are both orange.


Is the @ record :orange: or the wildcard * :orange: ? Wildcard subdomains are not proxied by Cloudflare.


I see rocket loader in your web page source

And for polish on some images I see the status as not needed, that doesn’t mean it isn’t running, just that we couldn’t further optimize the image. You can also see the cf-cache-status is HIT.
