I just discovered that there is a problem with the file that WordPress distributes - a lot of files are missing from that distribution. Please download the correct files from here: http://www.aquoid.com/dev/suffusion/suffusion.2.4.9.zip
I have no clue why the files are missing on WP - the files are there in the version that I submitted, otherwise the theme wouldn't be approved. In any case you should be able to use the zip above. To install it:
1. Unzip the file. It will create a folder called suffusion.
2. Copy this folder to the directory called "themes" under wp-content
3. You should be able to see this theme in your "Add New Themes" page. Go ahead and activate it.
Thanks for such a beautiful, versatile theme. I would like to use it for a blog for a friend. I am her web master and am setting up this theme for her.
I am on the most recent version of WordPress. I tried installing Suffusion tonight and had a similar problem to what you are describing. First I installed the older version (I had it from my last theme searches back in September), and it showed up fine. Then I discovered on WordPress.com that you have an updated version, so I downloaded it from WordPress.com and installed it. I got an error message (see below). In fact, I then got this message everywhere I tried to go in the Admin area. So I had to remove WordPress completely and start over. Somehow the Suffusion files from Wordpress.com not only didn't work...they messed up my WordPress installation. It was all new and there are no posts yet, so that isn't really an issue.
So I tried again. I reinstalled WordPress and then installed the "updated" version from WordPress.com. It is listed as Suffusion 2.5.6. It didn't work again, the parse error message first showing up when I clicked on Preview. It says:Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_OBJECT_OPERATOR in /home/cverigin/public_html/blog/wp-content/themes/suffusion/functions.php on line 665
Then I discovered that once again, all of Word Press is screwed up. This error message shows up wherever I try to go in the Admin pages. It shows up when I try to go to the actual blog page on Firefox too. So, here I go again. I will delete WordPress from the web space and re-install that, and this time I'll install this version you have here, 2.4.9. Since it's very late now, I'm going to do this work tomorrow!
Any feedback is appreciated! And do you have the new version 2.5.6 available for download somewhere other than WordPress.com? Or should I stick with this version from your site, 2.4.9? Seems so!
It's a bit confusing at this point, but I am sure we'll get it worked out! I was very impressed with your support and responses on WordPress.com and am very happy to see you have a support area. Thank you again for your wonderful work and your generosity and time.
