Today Suffusion crossed a very significant milestone – 100,000 lifetime downloads! Frankly when I had started out I had no clue that I would reach six figures. I have all my users to thank for this.
As is customary I drop in a line every now and then saying what I plan to do for the next few weeks. I will use this opportunity to do the same:
- A few more widgets and widget areas. This was something I promised a few weeks back. Broadly speaking, there are a few prime areas where I could let users put in widgets.
- Full BuddyPress support. This is something I will actively tackle once WP 3.0 is out.
- Full WPML integration. The major aspects of WPML work with the theme, but some aspects are missing, like integration with featured content etc. I will get these ironed out.
- Full theme skinning. I recently put in some options to take the sting out of configuring certain aspects of look-and-feel. I will be providing a few more that will help users pick their own images for everything, like widget headers, navigation bars etc.
- Typography support for custom fonts. This will help move away from boring “browser-safe” fonts and you will be able to use a wider array of pretty fonts.
- Code housekeeping. I read some posts on the web commenting on the general clutter of code in the theme. While I don’t agree with most aspects of the assessments, I will look at cutting out any cruft that I can see. In addition I am going to change the options framework to use WP’s Settings API, moving away from my homegrown approach.
That’s it for now! Thanks to all of you!
