Question on caching


Hello all. Loving Cloudflare (which I only stumbled upon quite recently). Was working amazingly for me (more than 80% of requests were served from Cloudflare’s cache), but a little over 24 hours ago the analytics shows that the amount of cached vs uncached more or less inverted…and I have no idea why!

Anyway, I know this isn’t the place to ask that question, but I’m just wondering how I can go about posting a new topic in the Performance section? I guess I can’t create a new thread currently because I’m a newbie?

Welcome! Say hello!


Normally, this can happen if you do purge everything.


I would like to EXCLUDE cloudfare from catching anything in a a particular folder, how do we do that?


Hi Saurabh,

You can easily exclude Cloudflare caching for your particular folder. This feature is known as Bypass Cache which works on Edge level.

@saurabh To proceed, please follow below steps.

  1. Login to Cloudflare
  2. Select Domain
  3. Go to Page Rules tab
  4. Create a new Page Rule

If the URL matches*

Then the settings are:
Cache Level: Bypass

I hope this helps.
