Suffusion Options Settings post will illustrate the complete suffusion layout. This is good for beginners and advanced users alike.

Latest News: I have change the link to the header in the skinning section.

Good News: Sayontan has released a new version 4.4.8. I will be making some adjustments to my list below and tutorials to make sure they are also up to date with the latest version.

As a Suffusion user I can see how many can struggle to get around the many options this theme has especially those who are new to themes framework structure.

To help those who are just starting and as a request by Marius from www.floridagreenhomebrokers.com. I have decided to create this tutorial glossary type post which I hope will put you on the right track and help you understand Suffusion.

This is my way of saying thank you to Sayontan for developing this great theme. I also want to mention Drake and Colin who do an incredible job managing the forum.

As you can see from the menu below it is broken into tabs which coincide with Suffusion tab structure. Each tab has sub headings. I will be adding a tutorial to each sub heading to help you further understand how to configure and set up Suffusion theme.

The following informatin is for advanced users. Sayontan published a while back information about Hooks and Filters. I am going to add some links to his website so that you can learn more advanced procedures to manage the theme.

The following images are found when you click on Appearance -> Suffusion Options and describes each section.

Suffusion Options Settings Guide



  • Welcome: I have not added a link to this tab because it is very straight foward and requires no configuration. (This option simply gives you some insight about Suffusion)
  • Upgrades: I have not added a link to this tab because most uses are running one of the latest versions. (This option is optional and only required if you are running a very old theme version. Most users nowadays are running the following vesions 4.4.7 and 4.4.8. If you are not then I suggest that you upgrade to the latest version for security and stability. I am sure Sayontan will remove or change this option in a future release)
  • Export/Import










Other Graphical Elements:


Back end:




Custom Types:

  • Custom Types (These option settings have been removed in version 4.4.8. I suspect that in a future version release the whole tab will be removed.)
  • Layouts

This will be updated from time to time so keep coming back to read the latest. If you have a question or if you have a request please send me an e-mail or leave a message.
