I’m proud to introduce you to Fusion, our newest theme. The versatility of this theme makes it great for a variety of uses including technical blogs, long-form writing, posting code samples, and displaying large images. You can use Fusion just like any other WordPress.com theme or, if you prefer a wide layout, this theme is ready to accommodate.
Fusion comes with a widget-ready footer, support for custom header image and custom menu, and options for you to customize the layout. Layout options in Appearance→Themes include fixed or flexible layout, choice of left, right, or two right sidebars, or a full-width main column with no sidebars. You can also choose to display full posts or excerpts only on archive pages.
It’s easy to personalize this theme by adding a custom header image and custom menu and using the various layout options to change the look. Here is an example of a wide design using the one-column, no sidebar layout option, flexible width main column, and custom header image.
Quick Specs (all measurements in pixels):
- Fixed width (one sidebar): main column width is

I’ll try it tonight ! :) Thanks!
Wow, this is a neat one! I like that you have so many customizable options!
I like the layout choices in the Theme Options!
This looks clean and wonderful! Thanks!
I MUST try it… it’s so customizable!
That’s really pretty. Might use it on one of the blogs.
Clean and elegant!
The flexibility of this theme is amazing. I love Inuit Types (with my CSS changes), but Fusion is a theme I will definitely explore. Love the simply, classy, and flexible theme.
That actually looks fantastic!
Nice but I wished we could change the colour scheme…
I think I’ll stick with my current Twenty Ten. I like the looks of it on my gardening blog, esp. the background.
Nice! I like the options too.
This is the best theme on wordpress.com in my opinion. As soon as I tried it out on my test blog I had to have it!
Nice work, thanks.
At last: a good-looking flexible-width theme with tweakage!
Now, to conjure up a suitable header image…
A heartfelt thank you!
I love this one! I am going to use it right now!
How do you get that green bar under the heading? Mine is just grey…
Ooh I see. Loving the theme!
Really dope! :)
Seriously tempted to change the look of my blog to this…
This is amazing and I just might switch to it! I’m too attached to my widgets to go sidebar-less, but the design is fantastic! Awesome job, WordPress!
Looks great, need to try it out!
This theme looks really nice but I still prefer Motion, my favorite theme.
Looks good, might try it out.
Nice theme! But, is a pity that in the option of the extracts can not set a featured image.
Nice, crisp theme. Love the additional header.
Oh, I am digging this very nice and clean theme, I must switch! :)
These are all starting to look alike.
Nice… I’m really loving all this themes with “options”… easy to modify and change the look of the blog.
Great theme! Very stylish! The only downer: no left sidebar and right sidebar combination, which is my favorite. So I remain with the Coraline theme.
I like it! Thanks do much for adding all the specs to this post too. I appreciate it.
Hmmmm this one might finally have me convinced to switch :)
Excellent looking theme!
Hey Lance! You guys at the Theme Team really capture WP.com users’ hearts! This theme will definite attract more bloggers with the many desired customization settings. Good job, guys! Cheers!
Ohh… I’ve been looking for a good theme… I might have just found it.
Yes this is great. The flexible widths / columns are wonderful. Space! I will use this soon.
It looks nice and simple… Love it. Good job!
Great, an excellent addition to an already excellent lineup of themes. :)
Cool theme! I love the tabs on top. :)
VERY nice! I like it a lot! I’ll try it out for a few days… see how it turns out!
The three most recent themes look alike.
Finally a new theme! Will you guys be planning on posting new ones more regularly?
I like idea of the really wide theme (:
Buy me some rum, cuz that’s about the only way I might understand all of the techno options. It sounds great though!
I’ve been looking to change themes and I thought I had decided on one because I like a wide writing palette but maybe I will use this one instead. Just in time for my one year blogiversary. Thanks WP.
Yay! No columns! Woo Hoo! Full-width images! Okay, maybe too many exclamation marks, but this is GREAT! :)
Cool, maybe one day we will get a full customize theme (I still dig Chaotic Soul as my favorite).
This looks to be one of the best themes on WordPress.com.
I like it, but it’s a little too simple for me. Greyzed is still my fave, and I will forever be indebted for it.
Very cool, another minimalist approach. :)
Thank you Lance! As soon as I know there’s a new theme—everything else waits so I can preview it. Another thank you to WordPress for making the previews available right away. It’s like shopping for new decor, all with one click.
Finally… a theme from digitalnature available on WordPress.com. I’ve always love digitalnature themes.
Thanks WordPress… your themes are the best!
:D I was just thinking about one column, then scrolled down and saw the oh-so-wonderful column-number options. I love it! I’ll be trying this one out soon, I think. Thanks a lot!
Holy Batman. This is why I spend more time screwing with my site than actually posting. :D
That’s a sexy Theme. Thanks a lot for bringing such sexiness to WordPress.
Finally. A no-sidebar option. At least if not with Coraline…. I will try Fusion.
I love the colorful “mouse-overs”. They look like candy. I could eat those up. It’s just a thingy with me.
Very nice. I’ll have a go with this one. Great work.
At last a theme with an optional side bar. I would certainly try this and it is looking good. :)
Really neat theme. One quick preview and I knew I was hooked!
Congratulations to the design team. It’s a wonderfully flexible theme.
This is the MOST FLEXIBLE THEME so far. Great job on this one, hope to see a few similar ones like this. ;)
Still waiting for full CSS customization. :D
Fantastic theme!! How do I get it? :D
Themes on WordPress getting better and better… :)
Change or not change…This is the question :idea:
Great new themes. I think I’ll keep the one I have but I love the choices.
It’s a fantastic theme. I love it so much.
Nice. Any chance of getting a theme like Atahualpa?
Oh, no!!! Please stop tempting me with new themes! I change mine every time WordPress introduces a new theme.
I need therapy.
It’s truly awesome!! I must use it. :D
I love the this theme. Well done, keep them coming!
I like the wide layout look. Not sure I’ll try it but it’s a great option.
Cool! I love this one.
I wonder when my dad is going to allow me to switch to a new theme. But then again, I would be so frustrated if I had just changed into a ‘better’ theme just hours before an ‘even better’ theme pops out. My dad would certainly not let me switch again.
I like the column setting… but there is no color scheme. So I still use Enterprise theme for my blog. I like the optional color schemes. :)
Love the theme. There’s only one factor preventing me from using it; inability to remove the header text over the image.
If you could allow this I’d be satisfied. :)
I like the theme, but I still prefer my current one! Thank you.
Very interesting layout! I like it! ;-)
Yay! Been a while since we’ve had a new theme. I love love love that is has layout options. I had a website that ran WordPress and I really miss all the neat personal touches you could add to a lot of the themes even without editing the CSS — like layout options. Thanks for another great one!
Lovely… I’m using it now!
Very interesting layout! I like it!
Hmm, this’ll be most effective for some of my other blogs.
Bon travail WordPress!
Looks good. I especially like that it’s wider.
I really like the options for this theme, and I might try it out quite soon once I decide on which blog to use it for. That, and I need to create a nifty banner to go with. :D
Such a great theme.
Oh my, that is handsome! I’m off to try it on my test blog.
Not half bad, although I’m unsure if I’ll trade.
Nice themes. And I like this one. ;)
