Suffusion today became one of very few themes to have been downloaded officially more than 500,000 times from WordPress.org. The other themes in this category are Atahualpa, iNove, Lightword and Mystique – all themes much much older than Suffusion apart from Mystique.

A Big Thank You to all of you users!

The next release of Suffusion is going to be a “framework release”. I am going to be pulling out a lot of bits and pieces of the code into separate files which you can override in child themes very easily. Some classic examples of this are the site footer that is displayed, or how the pullouts show up for different post formats. Apart from other things this will also reduce the load on the site. Suffusion holds the distinction of being a GUI Framework with ease of code modification, but this move will make it even easier to modify the code in the theme.

Of course, Photonic should be out rather soon too. But till then, enjoy the theme!

  3. Congratualtions!! could have been me that put you over the top. Downloaded it today and am working through the DON’T PANIC!! section. Seriously impressive work. Thank you very much.

     
  4. Suffusion is popular because it has so many features and is so ‘solid’. You have made this possible Sayontan. Thank you!

     
  5. I downloaded Suffusion yesterday and so far I’m really enjoying the ease of use. 🙂

    I made a couple changes using a child theme and the method you described here (thanks for the tip, by the way!)

    This update won’t affect that at all, will it?

     
  6. Congratulations! Well earned.

     
  7. I’m not surprised a bit. When you put out a great product word gets around fast. I first found out about Suffusion through a recommendation on the WordPress forum, and since then have recommended it in several venues. And the great support is just the icing on the cake!

    Congrats and many thanks 🙂

     
  8. Just been playing with it for the first time! Great job!

     
  9. I am a brand new user, in fact I just downloaded Suffusion Today. I am glad to have found a theme that not only I love, but one that people enjoy as well.

    Congrats!

     
  10. Congratulations! Suffusion is one of the best themes I’ve seen out there.
