I'm not sure if this is fixed yet, but it was causing so many problems (like some people were not able to access my website at all, while some could... so it forced me to get rid of Cloudflare, I just didn't want to create a problem for others). Here's the thread: http://support.cloudflare.com/discussions/problems/7826-cffeedback-feedback-james

Everything you can possibly think of is in the ticket. Smile

Thanks. It looks like that particular site visitor issue was resolved (this is actually very rare; we've had a total of three cases where this happened & is generally an issue with an ISP).

I'm curious as to what the HostGator contact said, however, since we have a pretty good partnership with them (your response will also vary based on who you get at HostGator).

Thanks for letting me know what happened.

Not really, in the ticket I also wrote that it happened to me and many others where the site was down for 10 minute intervals every few hours.

One of the live people at HostGator said that CloudFlare isn't for everyone and can sometimes make your site slower (especially if it's a forum) because you have to lookup CF's domain as well the hostgator server or something.

Understood. But this does appear to be fixed now.

Making people's site slower is actually not that common. The general cause of this *generally* has to do with sites/visitors being in locations where we don't have datacenters yet (located in Australia, for example). Other than that, most people actually see a general speed increase of 30-50% & things are pretty solid in places like Europe, Asia & The USA (we have multiple datacenters in each region).

Note: The reason I asked about the chat was that HG actually has some trained CloudFlare specialists that can take a deeper look at an issue. Hitting a rep on the front line that doesn't know about CloudFlare might cause some confusion because they don't understand the integration.

Thanks for sharing the info! Much appreciated.

Ah okay. Thanks for the help, so everything should be okay now or what? I'll remove the cross out in the guide.

Should be good to go. If you end up turning your site on again, please do let me know if you see anything weird.

As an aside because of other thread readers...

The beta features (Auto Minify, Rocket Loader) may break some javascript (pretty rare). If you turn these features on at all, remember to turn them off if you see anything happen & report the bug to us.

Okay, thanks. Big Grin

Yeah, I had that off as it caused problems with the editor.

Well I have a problem with the editor in Google Chrome, though I'm sure it's a browser cache issue because it works fine in Opera and Firefox.

This is my result > http://gtmetrix.com/reports/www.nadlerzforum.com/JLvSwVAV

Can someone guide me to achieve it to rate A or something higher grade?

This 3 are my problems, i don't know how to eliminate this:

Parallelize downloads across hostnames
Specify image dimensions
Combine images using CSS sprites

All three aren't necessary, but you might want to address number 2.

Also, you seem to be scaling a lot of images using HTML, you might want to fix that.
