Below, we’d like to draw your attention to our Control for CloudFlare® Magento 2 extension, but why did we decided to create the module? The answer is quite simple: the default version of the ecommerce platform does not provide all the necessary features out-of-the-box, so it requires some vital enhancements. That’s why we’ve made a decision to add the most convenient CloudFlare® integration to the list of addons available in the ecosystem. Unfortunately, the feature is not presented neither in Magento 1.x nor in Magento 2.x, but we have all appropriate modules in our portfolio, and in the following post you will find the most comprehensive description of how the Control for CloudFlare® Magento 2 extension works. But let’s describe the importance of CloudFlare® first.
We’ve started a new project aimed at improving the default Magento 2 import / export functionality. Although this process is significantly refined now, it still lacks some important features; therefore we are working on this Magento 2 extension. We have an aim to build a multi purpose solution.
Improved Import extension for Magento 2 provides a possibility to import your CSV, XML, Json, XLSX, ODS files with products data and product images to Magento 2 from a remote FTP server, Dropbox, Google Sheets, a direct URL of a source file, supports dedicated categories import, Rest and Soap APIs, on fly import of product attribute values, import/export cron jobs and more!
Today, we are happy to announce our third Magento 2 extension dubbed Control for CloudFlare®. This module provides a convenient integration of your Magento 2 website with one of the most popular CDNs CloudFlare®.
