Disable your caching plugin while setting up Borlabs Cookie 2.0.
Borlabs Cookie 2.0 is a completely new version, so it is not possible to upgrade from version 1.0 (1.x) to version 2.0 without a new license for version 2.0.
In Borlabs Cookie 2.0 there is no support for the plugin qTranslate. qTranslate has not been updated for 3 years and there was no way to integrate it like WPML and Polylang. If you are dependent on qTranslate, you cannot switch to Borlabs Cookie 2.0.
Most shortcodes from version 1.0 are no longer available in Borlabs Cookie 2.0. However, there is a replacement for each shortcode. Only the shortcode [borlabs_cookie_blocked_content] is still available. However, it is recommended to switch to the new shortcodes. More about this at the end of this article.
