Suffusion Theme tutorials post is a list of tutorials I have created for everyone to use and learn from. This list will grow in time and if you have a request please let me know and I will try and create the tutorial.
Last Updated: February 16, 2017
Latest News: I have updated the information.
Important: At present Suffusion is no longer available in the WordPress repository for various reasons. You can read more about it from the following URL did not meet the requirements. However I will keep on updating the tutorials and hopefully someone takes on the project and keeps Suffusion alive.
Good News: Sayontan has released the raw code and a small updated version. Please check the following URL Legacy Suffusion Version Availability.
In the meantime I have started looking at other WordPress theme frameworks. There are many out in the market and currently I am testing TeamplateToaster. You can start reading my tutorials from the following URL Design WordPress Themes Using TemplateToaster Software. I will be adding more information and tutorials about TemplateToaster. I will also try to compare the configuration settings with Suffusion, just in case you decide to purchase TemplateToaster if Suffusion is not updated any more. I pray that someone keeps the Suffusion project alive.
I am running Suffusion with the latest version of WordPress 4.7.1 and it works really well. I am currently also testing with WordPress 4.7.2 Alpha, so far no errors are appearing.
Good News: Sayontan has released version 4.4.9. Click on the following URL Suffusion 4.4.9 to learn more about the new version and the changes made. Since the new version 4.4.8 has removed all shortcodes. You will have to install Suffusion Shortcodes Plugin if you are using or going to use shortcodes related to the theme.
I will be going through all my tutorials to make sure they are also up to date with the new version. Judging from what I read in the above URL, not much has changed but a few option have been removed because they fall into a plugin category. A few issues have been fixed and a few options added and or updated.
Important: Jason Lasky in wordpress.org has reported a minor bug between Suffusion 4.4.7 and WordPress 3.9.1. Suffusion custom background color is not showing on website. Background defaults to theme skin default and blocks WP native background setting as well.
To set a custom color, return to Suffusion option / background / theme default and then use the WP Native background option to select a color – which will now show up on front end.
