Very long wait times



I am getting long wait times when testing my website (see attached photo). The website is a Wordpress site, I have Cloudflare free, with flexible SSL enabled. On the website I have the “CloudFlare Flexible SSL” enabled.

Any idea why the wait times are so long?


Ignore this, I switched on cache everything and now it’s much better.


Make sure you’ve set a Page Rule to Bypass Cache for wp-login.php (I also bypass for wp-admin/*)


Consider using the Comet Cache wordpress plugin instead of Cache Everything at CloudFlare. Cache everything will do just that - and new comments or logged in users will see cached pages rather than dynamic content.
