I have transferred in multiple domains to Cloudflare as my registrar but I just realized there’s an issue with SSL on the Wordpress.com “domain mapped” blogs that I have, including the one at singlemaltcloud.com.
The site loads via https, but I don’t get the lock symbol in the browser, and when I click on the information button, it says the connection isn’t fully secure, even though the certificate for sni.cloudflaressl.com is valid.
I reached out to the Wordpress.com support folks and asked about this and they noted I am not using their DNS servers, and if I were, they would be handling SSL for me (as they have in the past). They suggested I use their DNS servers, but that doesn’t appear to be possible for me at my account level (I setup a free account before transferring my domains over), nor do I think it would make sense to pay for a Business account to do that.
I’ve tried adjusting the SSL settings under Crypto (it’s at Full now), but the other settings either don’t change things for the better or make it worse.
I seem to be in a catch-22. Wordpress.com won’t handle SSL unless I use their DNS servers, but I can’t do that with my domain registered at Cloudflare.
Am I missing something?
