I’ve been busy creating a website on walking in Sussex these last couple of weeks, the long man guide to Sussex walks. I found a good WordPress theme, Suffusion, which I now realise is a very popular one. It’s certainly very versatile and allows for considerable customisation, and has a number of features to utilise. I added some free Icons – mainly from Icons Etc and used some of my own photos for the header and background, and it’s not looking at all bad, though it’s still a work in progress.
I had previously used Add This for social plug ins and sharing but this time went for something simpler – the Tweet, Like, Google + and Share plug-in. Whilst Add This has endless options for sharing content, this plug-in just sticks with the most popular ones – it does what it says. It is possible to add more buttons and I guess for for some sites you would currently want to add a Pin It button for Pinterest. See the plug-in’s home page.
You can read a review of the Suffusion theme at Theme Grade, a handy place to go to read reviews of themes and the leading theme developers.
