Suffusion Version 3.0.5

Suffusion Version 3.0.5 was released on 7th December 2009.

Users upgrading from an older version, please go to "Upgrade" under the theme options and click on "Migrate". Otherwise your blog might not behave the way you expect it to. If you are installing the theme anew, you don’t have to do anything.

Version 3.0.5 had a lot of enhancements:

  1. Performance Improvement
    This has been the biggest feature of this release. The theme has never been slow or sluggish, but prior versions of the theme had a very high number of queries in certain scenarios. I have rewritten some of the query logic and brought down the numbers drastically. The major changes are to the navigation bar, the featured content and the magazine template.
  2. SEO Enhancements
    I made some tweaks to some of the tags to ensure better search engine optimization for your content. For folks not using any SEO plug-in this should be a big feature. I intend to allow customizations for SEO features in the near future.
  3. Bug Fixes
    There were three main bug fixes. The first deals with excerpts showing up in the Magazine layout, the second deals with the “Add Comments” link showing up for posts with comments disabled and the third deals with the JQuery-based layout fix that I provided in the previous version, where I went inadvertently aggressive and broke the general layout.
  4. Code Restructuring
    This is of no impact to the users, but it sure does make my work easier. I broke down the code to modular units in a few places to help develop new features better.

Have fun!

  1. Hi Sayontan, a link to the download must not be missed here ;=)

    I just want to express how I admire your patience and devotion!

  2. I’m not seeing anything that says “Migrate”. But it has been one of those days. 😉
    Would you mind pointing the way?

    Thank you.

    • You have to first upgrade through Appearance -> Themes. Then you will see it under “Suffusion Theme Options”

  3. Got it. Thanks

  4. Hi Sayontan,

    I am using the Suffusion theme, an I think it is great!
    I also had issues like EOSF – relating to finding the way for the upgrade … I can not find the Migrate button …

    Could it be the reason that I am using an old version of the template (version 2.4.0)?

    Thank you for the support!

    • See my response to EOSF

      • Hello Sayontan,

        Thanks for the prompt reply 🙂
        I have tried under Appearance -> Themes –> Suffusion Theme Options, but there I can see only:
        * the menu items on the left (Theme selection, Header customization, …, FAQs)
        * 3 buttons on the footer section :
        Save changes, Reset page to default options, Reset options in all pages to default values …

        I am searching in the wrong spot?

        Thank you,

        • You have listed the wrong structure there. You have Appearance -> Themes and Appearance -> Suffusion Theme Options, not Appearance -> Themes -> Suffusion Theme Options. Go to Appearance -> Themes and upgrade the theme (this is where you would go to upgrade any theme)

  5. Now it is clear! Thank you!
