I have been a Suffusion user for almost 3 years now, and have used it to construct over 100 sites,... Why?
There is nothing this theme can't do!
Sayontan is a master of his craft, and ensures that the Suffusion keeps pace with the everchanging world of WordPress.
Support Forum, quick responsive, and a growing community of people willing to help.
Take a look at what it can do.
I am using Suffusion on 5 different sites and more to come. Same theme all different looks. I am not a 'developer' but I have learned a bit of HTML since creating my own website. The support forum is fantastic especiallly for newbies and Sayontan Sinha, the developer is a hands on person. In this ever-changing world of technology, this theme has been kept up-to-date with W3 and WordPress.org. There are far more options than I will use however that is what makes this theme so incredible. Thank you Sayontan for your dedication to this theme.
Over 870,000 downloads as of Sept 2012 can't be wrong!
When my old free theme became outdated in 2010 and the developer elected not to upgrade I researched many premium and free themes and at the time was looking for only a couple of options that weren't available with the old one. I came across Suffusion and it had the answers I was looking for so I tried it. It is easier to navigate the options now than it was then and that is what makes it so great!
Colour changes, column selection of 1, 2, or 3 on any page or post, more widget areas than you should use, easy to integrate with autoresponders, payment and membership plugins.
Suffusion has the all options one would need, which perhaps most importantly include the different layouts possible. The custom includes and hooks add so much more on top of the options already available. All that plus the friendly support make it the best theme there is.
The number of options and flexibility of this theme is initially overwhelming. But if you stick with it and experiment you'll appreciate the thorough, high-quality design effort put into this theme. Regular updates and communication from the author are pluses that I appreciate. I feel this theme won't be abandoned as some are by authors who tire of the ongoing effort in keeping up with WP advancements.
From simple sites to complex projects, Suffusion have options and features for all you can think.
Can start a site in minutes by using one of the great 19 skins, or can change completely the look of Theme without editing any file - only from Suffusion Options and Custom Includes. Can have a great community oriented site with the help of Buddypress and Suffusion BP Pack or can start an online shop with Jigoshop or Woocommerce and Suffusion Commerce Pack.
If someone need help, we are 24/7 on the support forum for helping people.
I warmly recommend Suffusion,
Everything you need to easily create any blog ar any website you'd like to, step by step.
I use it at http://www.avoodware.com - an entire website, with 3 different blogs in it, and much more...
Great wordpress theme! Not only is the theme free but Sayontan and others are active on the forums with support topics. Highly recommended! With "Display Widget" and "s2member" you can create a very nice community site.
Personally coming from using Atahualpa and themeframe from bytesforall. This theme is a lot more customizable and intuitive out of the box.
You can look at sample of what can be done with Suffusion here:
I have been using Suffusion almost from the beginning. The author, Sayontan Sinha, has created a very flexible, excellent performing theme that has kept up with WP releases. His updates are useful and pertinent for example support of HTML5. He is incredibly supportive via his forum. Highly recommended. I use it at http://www.alanarnette.com/blog
There isn't much you can't do with Suffusion. It is, for all intents and purposes a ThemeFrame. From newbies to developers, what you want to see, you can get. I'm still trying to grow into it.
