URL forwarding not working with Rules

I have my domain setup with Cloudflare, and it is using Cloudflare’s nameservers.

I have setup a Rule that will take any traffic coming to my domain and send it to another (using the *). However, it is not working.

Looking at the DNS settings in the Cloudflare panel, it imported all of my existing DNS records, including the A record. I’m guessing this is why the forwarding is not working? Should I remove all the DNS settings that were imported so that forwarding will work?

Nope. You need a :orange: Proxied record for a Page Rule to take effect.

There’s also this tutorial that might help:

If you need more specific help, please post a screenshot of your Page Rule.

@sdayman Thanks for your help. I have changed the A record to There is a second A record that points to the old host however.

I tried to add another A record for www as the tutorial suggests, but I got an error because www is already set a CNAME. Should I remove that? Here is the DNS settings I have currently:

I will post my rule in another reply, since the system won’t let me do 2 media includes in 1 post.

Thank you again for your assistance.

You really don’t need both “A” records. As long as they’re :orange:, then the Page Rule will kick in.

Your Page Rule does not match the one in the tutorial. It should be *happylittlemonsters.com/*
