Last Updated: March 9, 2018

Latest News: I have updated some links below.

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.

The following list can help those who just starting to build their site using Suffusion or for general reference. This is also added as a request by Marius from www.floridagreenhomebrokers.com. This glossary type post will help you understand Suffusion admin panel.

Note: 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 support forum.

The list below are separated in 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.

The following information 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.

  • Markup And Hook Reference = I will be adding more information below to include advanced customizing features. (Coming Soon)

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

Suffusion Admin 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)
