    • Now we no need of Cloudflare anymore, so log out your Cloudflare account.
    Now open your blog, and you will see that your blog’s homepage is automatically redirecting to HTTPS version. But now your blog’s permalinks is not in the HTTPS version, so we need to make all of them HTTPS and redirect the complete blog from HTTP to HTTPS.

    • And search for the “</head>” tag (without quotes) and paste the following code above the </head>
