A section for Shift8 CDN and WordPress integration discussions.
I’m using Shift8 CDN for the images on a WP site. It’s almost 2 months. In my opinion it’s GR8!
1st, thank u 4 this awesome free service!
There’s just one problem…
Most of my sites’ visitors r from Iran & most of the time, users can’t see images
I mean images couldn’t load properly… only if I refresh 2 or 3 times, they appear
There’s no p when visiting with IPs from other countries. Y? Could u plz help me solve this big trouble?
It is nice to be in this comunity and to learn about CDN.
I am using the free CDN service for my web so I want to thank for it.
And I want to report a problem too waiting for help.
I have openend an account in GTmetrix to test my web “gynrep.com” and i saw it does not detecte the CDN. How is it possible? Could it be any mistake in the CDN configuration or in the plugin?
Thanks in advance.

I checked your site & it seems you’re using Jetpack CDN.
Am I right?
GTmetrix detect Shift8cdn properly - as I’ve tested b4 for my own site. However, if it didn’t, there’s no problem & it’s not important
The all u need is adding your own/jetpack/shift8cdn hostnames in your GTmetrix account
Any1 2 help me?
Thanks very much for your answer and help.
By the way… Do you know where I can find the hostnames for the jetpack/CDN Shift8cdn?
Perhaps in the setting of the Shift8 pluging or in the dashboard of the page or in my private account from Shift8?
Thanks in advance.
Happy 2 help!
pn7nfwwofuff.cdn.shift8web.com is your Shift8 CDN hostname.
U can find it here: Sift8 CDN Dashboard Pull Zones Settings CDN URL without “https://”
& 4 Jetpack CDN I think this is what you’re looking for: “wp.com”
For adding theme to GTmetrix Account, put hostnames above here:
and Save Settings!
Thanks very much for your help but I do not find the window “YSlow CDN Hostnames” in my dashboard from my GTMetrix Account, I can find the other three windows (Default test connection, default browser and Default test region). Perhaps because my GTMatrix is a free account, not the plus.
Anyway it is not important.
Now I have a bigger problem. It is when I open my shift8 CDN pluging and I test it I think it has a problem because I see the message “Error detected: Could not find site in CDN”.
It is worring me because two days ago I checked it and came a massage saying: “If you read this message everything is fine”.
I do not what had happened. I guess it could be because I pressed the bottom “Purge” from “Purge cache” in my dashboard from my shift8CDN account. Or it could be another problem I do not know.
Can you please help me?
Thanks very much!
The feature is in both free and paid plans. Just go to account and scroll to find Analysis Options.
I have the same error but everything’s fine. Don’t worry
Hope Shift8cdn solve it soon.
For Purging Cache I use the shift8cdn.com dashboard (directly) but CDN Settings on wordpress plugin works properly.
