Not able to save recipe card

Starting yesterday I m not able to save recipe cards.
Its throwing an error and asking me to send support toemail.
So did and also posting in forums.
Is it related with WP 4.6.1 upgrade?

But for one minor glitch, has the potential to be great!

This is by far the nicest, most customizable recipe cards for WordPress but I did, unfortunately, have to go with another option because -depending on the browser used- the print feature glitches. The menu in the pop up window does not look very professional as options (fonts) overlap and the “print image: on/off” option doesn’t function altogether.

Very Good Woork!

Just giving 4 star because the lack of translation abilities. BTW it works like charm on WP 4.4.2

Buggy, steals our recipes

This plugin steals recipes. It copy every recipes you publish from our site to the There is no option to disable that.

On top of everything plugin is buggy. When is down you can’t save recipes. When you insert recipe you can’t edit article anymore until you resave it.
