First, I want to explain that some sites trust on CloudFlare over Discourse to add extra layer of security. This layer provides some features like Email Ofuscation, and Anti-Bots challenges, that uses a virtual path like:
Web analytics for a website proxied through Cloudflare (
Image resizing in the new URLs you would use for images (
Email address obfuscationOpen external link used to hide email addresses from malicious bots (
In CloudFlare documentations, recomed disallow that virtual path
/cdn-cgi/ to avoid that crawlers, search engines, inspect that path.
The main purpouse of this topic, is that I want to contribute on Discourse develop, adding a new PR, but first I should ask if this is a properly feature on Discourse.
Thanks for all
