The CloudFlare WordPress Plugin ensures your WordPress blog is running optimally on the CloudFlare platform.
CloudFlare has developed a plugin for WordPress. By using the CloudFlare WordPress Plugin, you receive:
Correct IP Address information for comments posted to your site
Better protection as spammers from your WordPress blog get reported to CloudFlare
THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW:
The main purpose of this plugin is to ensure you have no change to your originating IPs when using CloudFlare. Since CloudFlare acts a reverse proxy, connecting IPs now come from CloudFlare's range. This plugin will ensure you can continue to see the originating IP.
Every time you click the 'spam' button on your blog, this threat information is sent to CloudFlare to ensure you are constantly getting the best site protection.
We recommend any WordPress and CloudFlare user use this plugin. For more best practices around using WordPress and CloudFlare, see: https://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us/articles/201717894-Using-CloudFlare-and-WordPress-Five-Easy-First-Steps
