An infusion is an addon that is designed to implement an additional feature above and beyond the core utility of PHP-Fusion. These most often take the form of advanced utilities that provide extended benefits and allow a webmaster to further customize their site to their heart's content by being able to add and remove features they need or don't need depending on the focus of their site.

An addon is any infusion, theme, or panel that is available as an addition to PHP-Fusion that is not required for it to function but provides added benefits according to your needs.

theme is a term used to describe the design of your php-fusion. PHP-Fusion has been designed to allow for an easily editable, and as such highly customizable, layout. To alter the layout to fit your needs you will want to acquire or create a theme. A theme will ensure the integrity of your site while making it fast and efficient to ensure your own personal touch. One of the biggest problems in today's Content and Site Management market is the "cookie cutter" aesthetics that seem to affect any site using the same system. PHP-Fusion negates that problem by allowing you the ability to design the system to fit your needs with your aesthetics
