WordPress themes Suffusion 4-4-8 Is a very powerful theme with a very intuitive framework that you can develop further. It is FREE.

Latest news: Suffusion has update the theme to version 4.4.8. You can read more about the updates on the following link Suffusion 4.4.8.

Information: Suffusion 4.4.8 works with WordPress 4.3.1 and 4.4 RC1.

Important: Jason Lasky in wordpress.org has reported a minor bug between Suffusion 4.4.7 and WordPress 3.9. 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.

Note: Since the new theme version had all intergrated plugin options removed because of the terms of wordpress.org, you now need to install Suffusion Shortcodes plugin. This will allow you to use the many shortcodes availables with Suffusion.

  1. Hola,
    En primer lugar quiero darte las gracias por compartir tus comocimientos y después te diré que tengo mucho interés en aprender sobre wordpress y la plantilla suffusion; pero cuando intento instalarla en xampp me sale este mensaje:

    El archivo subido excede la directiva upload_max_filesize en php.ini.

    Y a partir de aquí, por mi escaso conocimiento, no se que hacer.
    Me podrias indicar algun totorial paso a paso para superar este problema?
    Lo puedes hacer tu mismo?

    • Hola Ancor, gracias por tu pregunta. Creo que entiendes el Inglés y por eso me has respondido por aquí.

      Si lees unos de mi temas escrito en Inglés acerca de xampp te ayudar con tu pregunta. El error que has recibido no tiene nada que ver con Suffusion es una configuración que tienes que cambiar en servidor local, “xampp”.

      Espero que esto te pueda ayudar. Si necesitas mas informacion mandame un mensaje.
