Menu icon Foundation
Orbit Slider

Are there any other animation effects on the Orbit slider other than 'slide' or 'fade'? Also, the navigation arrows on the slider for my website www.andropenis.info/shop/ seem slightly lower than the centre. Why is this?

Zurb have deprecated Orbit Slider, see here:

One of the suggested alternatives is Slick Slider, which I have found to be very versatile and easily integrates into Foundation:

Hope that helps!

I use, with very nice profit, the other Zurb suggested alternative: http://owlgraphic.com/owlcarousel/ (I felt adventurous and I actually use the version 2, which is beta: http://www.owlcarousel.owlgraphic.com/).

I don't have a link to share yet to show the result in a real website since the 3 ones I used OwlCarousel into are still in staging phase but I'll gladly share the result when they go public.

Hi everybody.
Matteo is right !!!
Owl carousel is the best alternative to the old Orbit slider ...
Very simple to integrate, flexible ... you can check my integration to my zurb template here:

I personally like Cycle2:

Orbit's animations are jQuery animations right now. It was changed to CSS3 animations at some point but caused touch scrolling issues so it's back to jQuery.
