Cache-Control Header extension for Cloudflare
Cloudflare is one of the most popular services for content delivery and website security. However, numerous Magento merchants face page caching issues using it. They repeatedly state that it simply doesn't work on Magento websites. The problem is that Magento sends no-cache values with HTML documents. Our Cache-Control extension for Magento helps merchants to set necessary headers for the correct work of Cloudflare service.
If you want to set the required value for a certain page, select YES in the first field. Then, set the value for Cache-Control Header in the second field. In the Full Action field set the type of pages that should contain the new value (follow the instruction under the row).
In the Pragma Header section set the needed values the same way as for Cache-Control. Keep in mind that directives for Pragma Header are not the same as for Cache-Control Header. By default, Magento sends Pragma no-cache value. If you want Cloudflare to work properly, this header should differ from the no-cache value.
