    The theme directory says it is a two-column/three-column theme, but it seems to support only two columns as per the theme's homepage.

    Can you please clarify if it supports three columns in any way? Thanks!

    Skepticgeek,
    Sorry, I did not see this post earlier. A two-column theme has one sidebar and a three-column theme has 2 sidebars. Up to release 2.3.0 both of these are supported. You need to go into "Sidebar setup" in the theme options and select how many columns you want there. The theme homepage is an example of a 3-column layout.

    From 2.3.5 onwards the theme also supports a single column layout (0 sidebars).

    Has this been tested with WordPress MU?
    I downloaded to my install of wordpress MU but when activated by a blog user, gets this error:
    Fatal error: Class suffusion_search: Cannot inherit from undefined class wp_widget in /Library/WebServer/Documents/wp-content/themes/suffusion/suffusion-widgets.php on line 11

    I will look into this. I haven't tried this out with WordPress MU, but since I have seen two reports regarding this on the same day, I will definitely take a look

    Fishercat,
    Which version of WP MU are you using? If I understand correctly, WP_Widget is not available for versions older than MU 2.8.1.

    Regardless, I am going to put in some code to prevent inclusion of the new widgets if you are on an older version.

    Hi sayontan,

    I've installed your theme and would like to stay with it because its modern and simple..

    but i got a question.. I've installed and configured another language other than english but unfortunatelly it still renders english words like "Posted by" and "Response" or "Leave a reply"..

    I've confirmed that my language is correctly instaled as I switched back to the original theme and everything is translated correctly, so I ask is there anyway to config Suffusion in order to use the configured language or do I have to edit every php file manually?

    Thanks in advance,
    Luis Santos

    Luis,
    Have you created a translation file for this or are you using WP's standard translation?

    Hi!
    I have the same problem as Luis, and i also want to solve it. Furthermore i want to change the main body color, i can only change to black or white. Where i can find it?

    Thanks!

    Sturgelose,
    I have to ask you the same question that I asked Luis - do you have a specific translation file for the theme? The way the translations work is that you have the standard WordPress translations and then you have translations for the theme.

    This theme supports translations, i.e. every piece of text that shows up on the blog can be replaced by something defined in another language. But obviously, since it does a lot of things more than the default theme, there are more texts in it than the default theme. So you cannot use the default translation package that WordPress provides. Since I am not fluent enough in other languages to write translations myself, I cannot translate it myself. A user did provide a Spanish translation which I can provide to you, if you are interested. But it is for a few versions older release, so things have changed.

    Are you looking to change the backgrounds for the posts? You can do so in the "Custom CSS" section under the "Custom CSS, JavaScript and RSS" section. Put in this code there:

    .post {
        background-color: #aabbcc;
    }

    This will change your post's background-color to #aabbcc. This is upgrade-safe, meaning that if you upgrade the theme the setting stays.

    Sayontan.

    Hi,
    thanks for your explanation.

    I tried translating the suffusion.po file found @ wp-content/themes/suffusion/translation but it didn't work, so I guess I'm doing something the wrong way..

    could you please tell me what i'm doing wrong?

    Thanks in advance,
    Luis

    i've been translating by editing the php files one by one...

    is this the best way ?

    i'm pretty sure that if you release an update, I will loose the translation so it problably isn't the best way :\

    Luis,
    There is a software called POEdit. You can use that to help do the translation. You can download it from http://www.poedit.net/download.php . When you install POEdit, you can double-click on the suffusion.po file and then translate the strings one by one. That way you don't have to edit the files. Take a look at http://themehybrid.com/themes/hybrid/translating . It explains how to translate a theme. Once you are done with the translation you can send me the file and I can include it in the theme.

    Which language are you translating to?

    Sayontan.

    hey,

    thanks for your reply.

    I'm translating to pt_PT ( european Portuguese )

    I'll gladly send you the translation .po file once i finish.
    I'll be taking a deeper look into it during the next 2 days.

    Thanks again, you've been very helpful :)

    Hi again, I just finished translating it with POEdit

    my "wp-config" WPLANG is set to pt_PT, my files are named pt_PT.po and pt_PT.mo , and are located inside /public_html/blog/wp-content/themes/suffusion/translation but its not working.

    I tried "tricking" the system by changing the filenames to suffusion.po and EN_US.mo but that didnt work either

    I'm doing something wrong again.. lol ... trial & error never hurted anyone but do you know what I'm missing here?

    Thanks,
    Luís

    PS: where can i find your email so I can send you the .po and .mo files?

    Luis,
    Sorry, it is a mistake on my part. Please modify functions.php to fix this. At the top you will see a line:

    load_theme_textdomain("suf_theme");

    Change it to this:

    load_theme_textdomain("suf_theme", TEMPLATEPATH. "/translation");

    That should work. I have corrected this at my end and submitted a new version to WP. Once it is approved you can download it.

    You can send me the files at sayontan [at] gmail [dot] com.

    Thanks,
    Sayontan.

    Hi Sayontan,

    First of all I would like to thank you for creating the Suffusion template, great work!

    Now I have a question.. I would like to change the header image. It all seems to work fine by entering the full URL in the Header Customization settings. Although when I visit the website, I'm asked for the password of the ftp-site I uploaded the image. When other people visit my website they won't see the image.

    Is there anything I do wrong? Could you help me with this?

    Thanks,

    Jan-Kees

    Hello Sayontan,
    Let me tell you --> I'm very happy with your theme! It is sooo easy to work with. Thank you!

    I do have a problem that might not be bug related but I wanted to ask you:

    I manage two blogs = different themes. I uploaded a single picture to both sites. In the first one (Thesis theme) the picture floats on click, exactly like I want, without leaving the post. On the other blog (Suffusion) the picture loads on a new window instead, which is very annoying for my customer. In this case, the picture was uploaded to a page, not a post, but I guess it doesn't matter, does it? Is this something that has to do with the theme? I checked both Gallery Options and it looks like I did the same setup. What am I doing wrong?

    Vschafer,
    I believe you posted this on my support forum as well, and it has been resolved here: http://www.aquoid.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=42 .

    For folks too lazy to click the link, the issue was with using the "HighSlide" effect of NextGEN - nothing to do with the theme itself.

    Users, please continue to post issues to http://www.aquoid.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=1 for quick attention.

    Sayontan.

    I have a WordPress blog in Version 2.6.5. I am trying to replace my current blog's theme with the Suffusion theme.

    I have the Suffusion theme successfully installed, but when I try to activate the theme I get an error that reads: Parse error: parse error in /Users/rp/Sites/wp-content/themes/suffusion/functions.php on line 665

    I'm really wanting to figure this theme out and use it. Can anyone offer any solutions?

    Thanks,
    Keeley

    Hi,
    Please see this thread on the support forum: http://www.aquoid.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=16 . This problem occurs if you are on PHP 4.x. The thread describes a fix for this, but if you have the option, please upgrade your PHP installation.

    Also, a lot of functionality might not work as expected (or break) with WP 2.6.5. Can you upgrade to the current version? That would be 2.8.5.

    Lastly, as pointed out in my prior posts, please use the support forum of the theme at http://www.aquoid.com/forum in case of issues.

    Sayontan.

    Hi,
    Pop-up comments are not currently supported in the theme by design - you will see the comment form at the bottom of your post when you click on "Add Comments". That is what you can use to put in comments.

    Since you tried to put in the default comments-popup.php to get it to work, you probably modified header.php. I believe you will have issues with the styles etc if you tried to use the default file (and you confirmed that you are having issues).

    Right now I can only suggest using the default comments feature. Maybe I will add popup comments as a feature later.

    Sayontan.
