    I have registered my domain with CloudFlare and changed the dns. I also just installed the CloudFlare plugin on my wordpress blog. I don't know if I needed to do both? I'm getting the following error message any can't find any solution to it. Screen shot below.

    You don't have to do both. Pointing the DNS to cloudflare alone is enough to make it work. I don't see any benefit in installing the plugin.

    I've been using Cloudflare for my WP website, never heard or used their plugin before. So no, you just have to switch your nameservers to the ones given by cloudflare, and that's pretty much all there is to it :)

    Thanks, I didn't know if I had to do both or not. I eventually got it working.
