Suffusion Version 2.6.2

Version 2.6.2 of Suffusion was approved today. The following are new in this release:

  1. Dropdown menus for Categories
    I finally bit the bullet on this one. I had a challenge positioning category navigation on the page, so eventually I decided to remodel the navigation bar. Up to the previous release I was allowing users to define what pages to show in the bar. In addition they can also show categories. Depending on how you have structured your blog, you might want to “roll up” categories or pages to one more level that you can name by yourself.
    This was a tough feature to develop and test, which is why this release took me time. Please let me know in case you encounter bugs.
  2. New template for “All Categories”
    In my drive towards providing a “magazine styled” theme I have provided a template for “All Categories”. I will provide more customization options for that.
  3. A bug fix for “Featured Posts”
    The “Featured Posts” section was earlier being restricted by the global option for the number of posts per page. I have gotten around this by offering an option to define the maximum number of posts to show.

Coming soon:

  1. RTL Support (Experimental)
    Unfortunately I have very little experience in this department. So though I will provide RTL support for Suffusion starting from the next release, the feature will be somewhat experimental. I need to work with users of Right-to-Left blogs to get the flaws resolved.
  2. Featured Posts Shortcode
    I am going to provide a shortcode for Featured Posts, which will let users insert featured posts into any document that they are creating.

  1. You must be a busy man with all those improvements ;-).

    Just curious, when there is a new plugin version you will be notified in WordPress in the dasboard with a red circle over the plugin tab with a number of how many upgrades are available. Is this not possible with themes? Now you have to go to the theme page to see if there is an upgrade of a theme. In this case I just follow your RSS of course ;-).


  2. Wim,
    I am sure this is possible, but I have no idea how to implement it.


  3. Hi, Great template, I have been using it for the last few weeks and it has great functionality. One thing I cannot seem to find is a mutli-level navigation bar for links and not for categories / pages. What I mean is that I want to post the links widgets on my navigation bar as a drop down menu. I cannot seem to find it in your options. Arno

    • That is because this support has not yet been built. The inclusion of categories itself is a new feature (from 2.6.2) – the others will take time.

Sorry, comments are closed at this time.
