Why version 5 is different from Version 4 Important Note!
We launched Lifeline2 in 2016, it was developed in Bootstrap 3 and Php 5.3.We got success and moved on to improve it and remove its bugs.After countless versions we introduced Version 4 but soon after launching this version we started feeling that we can't improve it further.It was nearly impossible to introduce new Demos, It became difficult to improve the design because the design was very old.
For this reason we decided to introduce a new version which has all the new things, new backend structure, new demos, new bootstrap, new shortcodes for WPBakery page builder, new Donation plugin which is faster and secure.We have worked very hard and very long to introduce the new version.
It took almost 6 months and 20,000 USD to provide this new version 5. But it is all done for the benefit of the clients. You will feel its greatness once you will use it. As far as the previous versions are concerned, you need not to be worried about it.You continue using those versions as we will provide the updates of those old versions.Please use version 5 for your new projects and you will get updates of Version 4 on regular basis.
We developed it so we know the weaknesses very well.Therefore we request to please cooperate with us so that we can give you something which is awesome and gorgeous.
