We noticed that Page Rules setup as 301 Forwarding URLs have just disappeared, which rendered many of our domains dead for web traffic.
When I search for help, I just find instructions that suggest we need to make sure A records are proxied, which they were at all times (one of the reasons we decided to move our entire domain portfolio to CloudFlare).
When I add BACK the Page Rules, the only way to get them to work is to turn OFF proxied A records? This is the opposite of instructions from CloudFlare.
This doesn’t seem to be limited to 1 host or IP either. This seems to be the case with all of our domains, regardless of where we have A records pointed.
The Page Rules are as written above. The A record proxy OFF is what’s required to get this to work. I imagine this means that the Page Rule is being bypassed altogether and HTACCESS at the server level is handling the Rewrite.
When I delete the Page Rules, the URL still Rewrites properly.
When I put the A records proxy back ON, the URL still Rewrites properly.
Does this help explain things more clearly? I’m so baffled by this… and I’m sure it will be something simple. Any ideas to help me?
