Suffusion Version 2.5.0

Suffusion Version 2.5.0 was released today and it can be downloaded from WordPress. The most prominent features of this release are: Featured Posts!! I have pulled together a “Featured Posts” capability using the jQuery-based s3Slider. I had to make some non-trivial changes to add a frame index at the bottom of the slider, but it […]

Suffusion Version 2.4.7

7 days after processing my previous update, WP finally approved my latest update, version 2.4.7 on 20th October. I had made submissions of 2.4.5, 2.4.6 and finally 2.4.7 before the last update was processed. The last three releases have brought forth some major changes: Nicer Excerpts – You can now do a lot more with […]

Debuting the Support Forum

The Comments section in WordPress has served its utility as the forum for support issues. Effective today I am moving the support for Suffusion to a new phpBB-based forum. The forum is set up with the default theme and I intend to customize it over the next few months and have Suffusion for phpBB. Starting […]

Thanks, Translators!

Over the past few days I have received a lot of support from willing volunteers who translated Suffusion into different languages. I would like to thank each of you who did this: French – Wolforg. Given my familiarity with the basics of French, this is the first language to be officially included with the theme. […]

Issues with NextGEN Widgets on Suffusion

Recently an issue was brought to light by one of Suffusion’s users (Colin), where the NextGEN gallery widget wrecked the layout of the rest of the theme. I took a look at the issue and found a few things. As you are probably aware, I use Docking Boxes for some snazzy effects on the sidebar, […]

Suffusion Development Winding Down

Over the past couple of months I have spent a lot of time adding new features and supporting users of Suffusion. I started with a single template and now the theme has morphed to something with a good set of options. Of course, it is not as comprehensive as Atahualpa (and I don’t want to […]

Looking for Translators!

I made Suffusion translation-ready about a couple of weeks back and I have, since then, received a request for translation capability. As far as I know, getting translations costs money and unfortunately, since I provide both, this theme and its support for free, I don’t really have that essential ingredient. So I was wondering if […]

WP Docking Boxes not Working on Chrome?

I first came across the awesome Docking Boxes (dbx) on Nick La’s awesome theme, iTheme. Not sure what Docking Boxes are? Look at the side of this blog. You can drag the widgets up and down and collapse or expand them as you want. This is all thanks to some really great code from Brothercake. […]

Suffusion 2.2.2 is Now Live

Good news for people asking for a narrower main page – I brought it down to 1000px. The difference is imperceptible, but users concerned about low-res monitors can now breathe easy. In a subsequent release I am going to make the width configurable. I also put in a few other features: Dynamic gradient images in […]

Suffusion 2.2.1 went live on 8th September. The key features in this release are: New colors – You can now pick an orange-base A “Home” Button – You can show a “Home” icon or tab in addition to the pages on your blog in the navigation bar Control over comments – You can hide your […]
