I've been doing vBulletin for about 16 years now, as my join date will gladly tell you. So, if I offer a professional opinion, more often than not, I'm right :) Oh, and yes, I kiss my bulldog on the lips!

I've lost count of the number of times I've been rousted from sleep from my "VIP" clientele due to some "weird issue." It's doing this, or it's doing that.

Nine times out of ten, it's been related to Cloudflare.

So, here's some tips to eliminate most problems related to these phenomena:

PAGE RULES: Use them! Even with the free account, you get 3 page rules to do as you please with. One of these should be to completely eliminate all caching and spam-related tools in your AdminCP as well as your ModCP. You can leave the browser-integrity check and GEO IP settings and such enabled. An example of such a page rule is:


Now, if you're on the FREE account and want to use your "3 wishes" sparingly, you can do this...


This will apply to AdminCP, ModCP, usercp.php.

I'll add to this as new issues arise, but I thought I'd share my first article in fourteen years and save people a ton of trouble.

I would like to add a point that, at least to me, took me several weeks or even months, without knowing how to solve it.
My problem was in (maybe it was only in a new theme that I installed, but in case someone else happens to it), at the beginning of the forum, the boxes to enter username and password did not work, once tried the login and with your consequent login error, the following login screen was already working.

To solve the logging problem in the forum index, in CloudFlare I had to disable Rocket Loader, this solved this problem for me.
