Hi everyone, I hope everyone is doing good!
First of all, let me share some facts about my setup:
Theme: Fiji II by Flothemes
Cloudflare: free version that is part of my Siteground package
Since a few weeks, I’m experiencing a major issue with my site. Not one that is obvious for every visitor, and not one that seems to exist 24/7. But, after lots and lots of troubleshooting, many try and errors and a lot of research, I’m sure I figured out what the problem is. That’s why I landed in this forum
I have activated the WebP feature in my Siteground account (before I was using EWWW for the same reason, same issues btw) and I can clearly see that these files are not handled correctly by Cloudflares CDN / Caching service.
I have been checking my site over and over again and it’s a fact, that Cloudflare is serving WebP images to Safari Browsers that do not support these kind of files. This leads to blank fields when someone is visiting my site which is a pretty bad thing as my site is a photography website and images are key content.
This problem is not affecting every single picture, mostly logos and pictures in my slideshows, but it is pretty annoying anyways, as the only non-permanent solution is to purge the Cloudflare cache.
Isn’t there a proper solution, any rules or plug in recommendations that get rid of this issue? Unfortunately Cloudflare isn’t responding to my ticket and similar threads in this forum have been closed without any successful solutions.
Would be great if someone could help me here.
Thank you very much, stay save and have a good day
