I have stopped working on Suffusion (and supporting it in any form) after it was pulled from the WordPress repository. However, there were several requests for the code to be made available for download. I have finally put up a version at GitHub. There are two folders available there:

  • code – Contains the raw code used for the theme. I have ensured that all of it is current as per version 4.4.9, and that a couple of corrections required have been included.
  • dist – Contains the zip files for the code. You can use the 4.4.9 version (the last available version from WP), or the 4.5.0 version. The 4.5.0 version contains the corrections cited above.

Please note that I am not resuming development for the theme – keeping up with an obstructionist Theme Review Team is too cumbersome (apparently now Custom CSS is not allowed in themes!!). There will potentially be a point of time in the future when the currently available versions will cease to be compatible with WordPress. As of now the theme runs fine with WP 4.7.2.

  1. Thank you Sayontan for what you have done!
    Any chance you would be willing (or anyone) for that matter. To make the widgets from the theme into a plugin? So that we could use those widgets with different themes?

    Thank you again!

    • Not me. But the code is available in the GitHub repository, so if someone is willing to carve it out, I have no issues with that. It can even be released officially – GPL allows that.

  2. So sorry you theme is gone. I really loved it. You are awesome Sayontan!
