I tried quite a few HTML5-based themes before Suffusion, and I have to say it is by far the best. Nothing else I tried had anywhere near the number of useful customization options, and no other theme I tried made my blog appear the way I wanted it. Yes, the options are a bit scattered, but I was able to find everything I needed, and it all just works. I even received a comment on one of my posts asking me if I was using a free or paid theme, and expressing enjoyment of the appearance of the theme as well as the content itself. Of course I linked to Suffusion in my response, as well as to the GPL license. I greatly appreciate the work that went into this awesome theme, as well as the freedoms that come with the license to use it.
...you'll ever need! You can make just about anything you want with it.
Suffusion has a very large number of options, which take a while to understand, but once you have done that, it's worth it! Great front page Magazine layout, Featured posts (I use for urgent "Stop Press" type posts) it has the flexibility to work as a great CMS.
I find the "responsive option" for mobile is a good fit, which supports mobile/tablet users without the mobile needs getting in the way of good pages and layouts for bigger screens.
The support is good and updates are out regularly to track WordPress updates. This is important and (so far) I have never had a problem with the theme, (only with a couple of plugin updates - nothing to do with the theme - incompatible with WP updates!)
So thanks to Sayontan Sinha for the tremedous theme and ongoing updates. I am very pleased that I chose Suffusion for my web site!
I 'developed' my first WordPress website using this theme (www.stmaryschildcare.org.nz). I put 'develop' in quotes because Suffusion's interface enabled me to do stuff I am incapable of doing from first principles myself. Without it, I couldn't have produced the quality of website I ended up with. In fact, I think I would have got someone else to do the design and just stuck to the content, which is my usual mode of operating!
Thank you so much Sayontan for making this theme available to people like me. I will definitely be making a donation to you.
My favorite theme so far. It has also helped me a lot in learning the basics of WordPress design and functionality as I've described in my blog (made with Suffusion).
I've tried lots of themes. Suffision is still the best, since the first time until now.
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.
Fast setup (despite loads of options) and beautiful.
