Problems with version 1.1.92

Hello!
Thank you for the plugin! Very useful functionality! 🙂

I had a problem with the new version of the plugin. The tabs “Text” and “Visual” don’t work (text box). I created a new resume, but always active tab “Visual”, in the text field is entered in white letters. WordPress version – 4.3.1.

Shortcode is removed cause nothing shows on the page

The plugin version 1.1.94 is AWESOME. After update to version 2. The shortcode is no longer available. Meaning if you already used the shortcode on your website, those pages will display nothing. Be sure to backup your site before update this plugin to the new version.
