Can I use WordPress caching plugins like Super Cache or W3 Total Cache (W3TC) with Cloudflare?

It is possible to cache the HTML of a WordPress site at Cloudflare's Edge using a feature known as "Bypass Cache on Cookie". This can dramatically improve the speed of your website and reduce server load; in cases where the HTML is cached Cloudflare will not need to make a roundtrip to your web server. In order to utilise this feature, please see the article: Caching Static HTML with WordPress/WooCommerce.

Cloudflare is able to proxy HTTP traffic of any website, including WordPress sites with third-party performance plugins installed, however please note that these plugins are installed at your own risk.
