    OrbitRandomslider

    I have wanted to use Orbit on a few sites but the problem is I needed random order of slides. To get around this I tried shuffling the elements before the slider loaded and it worked! It isn't perfect and could probably use some enhancement but it wor... (continued)

That sounds like a bug or a problem as columns should also work.

That is the Vanilla CSS version.

Maybe there is a problem with the SCSS version?

Check your CSS to ensure it's complete. It's working fine for me: http://codepen.io/Lynda333/pen/rxJLbJ

I would recommend using a CMS because they offer so much for both you and your clients.

About what CMS to use can be tricky with how many are available. My biggest advice, from my experience, is find a CMS that you are comfortable with that fits the needs of most of your clients. If you find one that you are comfortable with using it goes a long way.

About agencies. I've spoken with various agency owners, both large and small. They find one or two they like. One agency owner I know uses BC for most sites and Magento for large eCommerce sites. Others use Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal, Shopify, Big Commerce, etc.

With that said, there are many agencies that use a custom CMS that was developed by that agency. I wouldn't be surprised if ZURB uses a custom solution with the talented team they have.

Saw an article on Foundation 6. It had this to say about Orbit:

Orbit Slider is Back and More Robust

Foundation 6 has brought back the Orbit slider, but with a different approach this time around: it’s designed to be a wireframing tool. This version comprises only a little HTML and a little JavaScript. The code to customize it will be done inside the page markup and is much easier to carry out.

When looking for a slider in your production phase, the team at ZURB recommend using a slider such as Owl slider for example. As mentioned, the Orbit slider is purely meant as a wireframe tool.

I use Adobe Business Catalyst (BC). It's not a perfect CMS but it works well for almost all of my clients and has a lot built in. BC handles the server side stuff so I can concentrate on building my sites using HTML/CSS/JS. It's perfect for Foundation in my opinion.

Also, BC has a templating engine based on Shopify's Liquid. Works well and isn't too difficult to learn when you need to perform more complicated task that the server should run.

I just started building a site with it and so far it is working pretty good. I've ran into a few issues but nothing really too major for this specific site.

Thank You Rafi!

That link helped solve the issue. It was formstack loading jQuery which as causing the problem.

It actually is a simple fix, all one must do is append ?nojquery=1 (or &nojquery=1 if you already have another parameter) to the formstack script URL and it solves the problem.

Customizer allows you to download 5.4.4 but the top-bar is still unavailable which makes the customizer worthless to me as I use the top-bar on 99% of my sites. (The 1% is for projects I don't need a menu or top-bar on...)
