    On both the Scan page and the Blocked IPs page of the lates version, 3.0.7, I get:
    "Could not get the administrator's user ID. Scan can't continue."

    WP 3.4.1 with Wordfence 3.0.7
    Scan would not start.
    Scan Summary: Blank
    Scan Detailed Activity:
    Could not get the administrator’s user ID. Scan can’t continue.
    What could be wrong?

    Same problem here :).

    Plugins used and activated (all are up-to-date):
    Akismet, Clever Tweet, Contact Form 7, Custom Login lite, Disqus Comment System, Fancybox, flickrRSS, GD Star Rating, Google XML Sitemaps, MapPress Easy Google Maps, NextGEN Gallery, nrelate Related Content, Platinum SEO Pack, Shareaholic, Twitter Friendly Links, WP-PageNavi.

    Got a solution for this problem?

    With version 3.08: It's better but we have a loop with scan.

    Version 3.08 does not give me a loop with scan. Scan works fine for me with this new version.

    The only problem I have with it is attempting to block an IP from the Live Traffic page seems to be forever working. But a refresh of the page shows that the block was successful. Unblocking is without glitch.

    I have to rate this as "It works". Thanks mmaunder.

    It's not a question of rating or not..
    For others it's not ok.

    Okay, maybe the word "rate" was not quite the one to use.

    But version 3.0.8 did resolve the issue that 3.0.7 had. So this issue is resolved and should be marked so.

    If you have a problem with version 3.0.8, then open a new problem thread for that version.

    Plus, version 3.0.8 works for me. So should I not afford the developer and the community the courtesy of letting them know by voting "Works" on the plugin page? You have the same ability and access to vote "Broken".

    So why isn't it a question of rating when we are members of the same WP community?

    Best regards.
