Ever wanted to tweak a CloudFlare setting on your site without stepping out to CloudFlare itself to do it?
One way that we try to make WordPress management easier is to reduce the “hops” you need to make to get anything done.
How better to do that than to integrate 3rd party services directly into the control panel?
Today we’re releasing the first stage in our CloudFlare integration.
CloudFlare Site Management Integration
If you’ve been following along with us for a while, you’ll know we’re huge proponents of CloudFlare.
We can see no good reason why any site should be without it. We use it heavily and we wanted to make our lives (and your lives) easier by integrating the CloudFlare API into iControlWP.
You can both see your CloudFlare configuration at a glance, and also modify a few things as you need on a per-site basis.
With our CloudFlare Integration you can:
- Toggle Development Mode
- Set the Security level
- Set the Caching level
- Set the Minification level
- Set IPv6 support
- Set Rocker Loader on/off
Coming very soon…
- Ability to purge the CloudFlare cache for any site.
- View the state of many other settings such as ‘Always On’, ‘Browser Integrity Check’, ‘SPDY’, and more. (CloudFlare hasn’t opened up the API for changing many of these settings – you’ll have to use CloudFlare directly for that).
Why is this so cool and how can I use CloudFlare with iControlWP?
To get started with iControlWP + CloudFlare, check out the support centre FAQs here.
We’ve been compatible with CloudFlare based websites since the day we launched – we feel they’re an important layer in your website management in terms of performance and security. You don’t need to install extra plugins to get it working – we tested them carefully before launch.
This new integration is cool because it brings you 1 step closer to our goal of centralizing all your WordPress management tasks into 1 place, so you don’t have to jump around to different places just to get anything done!
As the first WordPress Management service to integrate (or even show signs of it) CloudFlare – we’re realising a bigger picture of WordPress management that is more about covering all aspects of your website hosting, not just your plugins/themes updates.
As always, feedback welcome!
We’ve had great feedback from our clients after we released site labels / groups, and also WordPress Installation Templates. We’re clearly moving in the right direction and we’re happy to take on your suggestions and learn ways we can improve iControlWP, making your WordPress management even easier.
Stay tuned for more updates coming soon!
