    I just updated wordfence and am getting the below error. Any idea how to solve this? I disabled the plugin and it’s gone now.

    Notice: is_404 was called incorrectly. Conditional query tags do not work before the query is run. Before then, they always return false. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information.

  • I am having the same problem… help…. i dont want to turn off the plugin but i also dont want people to see this error message…

    I am getting the error

    After installing the latest version and logging out, I am no longer able to log back in again. The error message says

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function wp_get_current_user() in /websites/123reg/LinuxPackage21/ec/cl/es/ecclesfield-school.com/public_html/news/wp-includes/user.php on line 227

    I can’t login to disable the plugin either now

    Same problem

    They better fix it fast since we are probably all disabling the plugin and thats very attractive to hackers…

    @rowina

    If you don’t have a user called admin or administrator then your pretty safe from brute force password attacks. I get lots and lots of those attacks but none has ever used a valid username on my sites.

    Why aren’t we getting any feedback on this issue?

    Good question blogbaldi!!! If you can help finding a direct phone number to the company, I will call them and raise h…ll

    @nsnbc? If you have a problem with this plugin please start your own topic.

    https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/wordfence#postform

    If you are a “premium” customer of this plugin author then you need to use their site for support.

    http://support.wordfence.com/support/home

    That’s because commercial products are not supported in these forums and the plugin authors know they cannot support their customers in these forums.

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Forum_Welcome#Commercial_Products

    Dembrowski – we HAD to register a premium account in the HOPE to get a more swift response because HERE nobody responded.

    USEFUL ADVISE would be more appreciate than your lecturing which solves absolutely nothing.

    Me too. Same problem!

    nsnbc: All plugins on this site are free, including this one. They come with no warranty and no guarantee of support of any kind.

    If you need support for a plugin that you paid for, then you need to go to the site where you paid for it, not here. This is a free support forum, and complaining and griping here will not get you support any faster, or indeed, at all.

    If you’re having a problem with a plugin update that disables the ability to access your site, then I would suggest removing the plugin entirely. You can do this by accessing your website’s files via either FTP or SSH, and renaming or removing the plugin’s directory. This is the only option to regain access to your site from a broken plugin.

    If you are having problems with “Notice” type messages (which can also prevent you from logging in), then I would recommend disabling the “display_errors” setting on your hosting service. This is a debugging setting in PHP, and should never be enabled on a production site.

    Again, we cannot even log into the admin area. As said before, when we try, we get a failure message:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function wp_get_current_user() in /home/nsnbc/public_html/wp-includes/user.php on line 209

    Thank you for the advise that we could remove the plugin. Now the question would be HOW? when its impossible to access the website.

    Thanks for your concern

    Also note that this particular error with plugins causing the “Call to undefined function wp_get_current_user()” was fixed in WordPress 3.7.1.

    The ticket describing the problem is here: https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/25690

    The fix made it into 3.7.1 and all later versions.

    So, are you all running older versions of WordPress? The latest version is 3.8.1, and you should upgrade your WordPress if you are running an older version.

    Samuel Wood
    I am running WordPress 3.8.1 and I didnt have this issue before I upgraded WordFence today.

    I agree that free plugins come with no warranty and no guarantee of support of any kind.

    However, I would hope that the plugin developer/s keep an eye on the forums. Presumably for many plugins the free user base is much larger than the paid user base. It’s much better for them (the developer)to be notified of a possible plugin issue by the free users and perhaps rectify it before it starts impacting their paid users.

    So, the free user base does perform a useful testing service for the developers. Personally if I was a plugin developer, I’d release my plugin to the free community first then release it to the paid community later.

    Anyway, that’s all a bit off topic.

    For those with problems you may need to regress to the previous version for now.
