How it worksThe Cloudflare purge plugin uses Cloudflare's API to clear the cache for the URL in the currently opened Chrome tab. The extension has the ability to purge the entire cache for the current domain. It also has the ability to provide information about the caching status of the current URL and tell the location of the Cloudflare node that serves the cached contents. It provides an option to purge multiple URLs at the same time using the options page.
|1. Install the Cloudflare Purge Plugin from the Chrome webstore|
|2. Right click on the plugin and open the options page. Fill in your Cloudflare account e-mail and API key.|
|3. Open a page of your Cloudflare enabled website in a Chrome tab and click the "Purge Cache" button. The plugin will clear the page from the cache.|
|4. You can purge the entire cache with the "Purge Entire Cache" button.|
|5. You can get more information about the cache status and the current Cloudflare node by clicking the "Info" button|
|6. You can purge multiple URLs at the same time from the options screen. Just right click on the extension icon and select "Options" from the context menu.|
