Suffusion Shortcodes


The Suffusion theme used to be armed with a bunch of shortcodes prior to version 4.4.8.
So what happens when you update Suffusion or change themes? This plugin ensures that your content stays as it is and lets you switch with your mind at ease.
Users of Suffusion get some added flexibility with the plugin in terms of more customizability.

For a list of all available shortcodes and their usage, see here:


You can install the plugin through the WordPress installer under Plugins → Add New by searching for it,
or by uploading the file downloaded from here. Alternatively you can download the file from here, unzip it and move the unzipped
contents to the wp-content/plugins folder of your WordPress installation. You will then be able to activate the plugin.


Do I need this if I am using Suffusion?

Prior to version 4.4.8 of Suffusion, the theme had inbuilt shortcodes. If you have used those shortcodes on your website, then you
definitely need this plugin. As of version 4.4.8 of Suffusion, the shortcodes have been removed from the theme. This plugin now
stands alone and is fully featured, so you can use it by itself, regardless of which version of Suffusion you use, or whether
you use Suffusion at all.

How do I make this work with other themes?

Just activate the plugin, and you are done. Whether you have moved from Suffusion, or if you are starting anew, you are always covered.
