Happy 5th Birthday Avada!

Happy 5th Birthday Avada!

It’s hard to believe that 5 YEARS have rolled by since the release of Avada 1.0 back in 2012. The years have flown by and Avada continues growing thanks to our amazing customers and dedicated team.

We, ThemeFusion, feel blessed to be part of the amazing world of WordPress. Five years ago when we set out we had no idea where the road would lead. Through hard work, dedication and the willingness to go the extra mile for our customers, our incredible team has been able to achieve what nobody else has.

We released Avada on Themeforest on August 16th, 2012 and within 10 days we reached the No. 1 spot and have been there ever since. That is an incredible accomplishment, something we never really thought possible when we first created Avada. It has evolved so much, all for good and we know the best is yet to come for our 5 year old girl!

Every year we see the growth each of our team members give to Avada to improve it. We work collectively as a team to provide the best possible product and customer service to our 475,490+ users. Over these 5 years we have learned a lot about our industry, our customers and WordPress … merging them all into something that people love, Avada. It is absolutely amazing to see everything unfold. Time flies when you doing what you love with passion.

None of this would be possible without our incredible customers, an amazing team who works together day by day to continue and grow in every way possible and the Envato platform.

We will continue to strive and better our products and form long lasting relationships with our customers. We will be back here celebrating Avada’s 10th year birthday in 2022!

Onwards we go!

    Well done team, a happy Avada customer here, I write about the theme and recommend my readers to use Avada as well.

    Customers are real strength, keep up the great work, any help you need from my side (as a user and believer in continuous improvement), let me know. Cheers.

      Hey Ahmad!

      Pleasure to hear from you, we are very thankful for your insight and posts about Avada. And we’ll certainly keep that in mind! We’ll in touch.

    Congrats! Three years ago we got to build three sites the week before Christmas. As we are more editors and graphic artists than programmers discovering Avada saved us and we delivered before the holidays. Since then we are glad to serve our happy clients, mostly in the entertainment business, Avada based Websites. Party on, guys, you do deserve a celebration!

      That’s awesome to hear, thank you Sven! The best is yet to come 🙂

    It’s really nice to work with a theme that just works! Avada is my favourite WordPress theme and the scope to customise the look and feel is endless whilst still keeping the rock steady underlying architecture that makes customising Avada a breeze. 5 Years in internet land is a long time guys. You should all be very proud of your achievement. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it.

    Congratulation Team Avada!

    **** It is amazing to see all the features without compromising the performance ****

    You guys are adding new features in every release and reducing the file size. It is the fastest loading theme on the internet with great customization options and bundle of features.

    And we (analysistabs.com) too celebrate our 10th year birthday in 2022.


    Very All the Best!

    Very Happy Avada Customer –  PNRao!!

    Congratulation Avada and whole the team members,

    Avada just not a theme its a platform to use WordPress easily and create many themes by using fusion builder and avada plugins.

    Thanks Avada!

    Two months later and no updates in between. Are you guys perhaps too busy working on a Vue.js based version of a standalone Fusion Builder?

    • Luke September 26, 2017 at 2:04 pm

      Hello Herman,

      Our updates cycles have not changed, they are always around this time, anywhere from 6-12 weeks, although sometimes sooner. We do that because our updates are packed with new features like you see here: https://avada.theme-fusion.com/whats-new-in-5-2/. That kind of thing takes time. So we issue major updates, then an iteration update in-between to fix issues that may arise. For example, 5.2 released, then 5.2.1 and 5.2.2 … the next update is 5.3 and is a major update.

      At the same time, we have more than one dev team. We are always working on the next version of Avada, and we are always working on other items that are coming 🙂
