For some reason my site doesn’t appear to be utilising Cloudflare’s functions, despite the A DNS records being proxied.
My server is located in London and website location searches seem to suggest Chicago which appears to be correct when being proxied.
Website is on Full (Strict) security but origin certificate isn’t being masked as a Cloudflare cert when checked via browser. Usually my sites show a Cloudflare certificate. Mine shows Letsencrypt.
Page Rule “Cache Everything” does nothing. Usually this will cache the wp-admin bar and make the site near instant. This is not the case for me.
I have CSS, JS, HTML minify all on. Cache 6 months, brotli, all the usual settings. Very concerned that none of this is taking effect.
Has anyone got any advice on this? I am using the Brett and Vita nameservers, since changing from Mitch and Sue when I switched my records between two Cloudflare accounts.
On an unrelated note, I am trying to improve my site’s First Contentful Paint. When I enable “Page Caching” , be it on WP Fastest Cache or w3 Total Cache, the site is instant to load , yet Pagespeed insights still reports the same First Contentful Paint? Literally no change whatsoever with page caching. Very bizarre.
