We hear a lot of questions from people using Foundation and realized that a lot of the same ones were being asked. We put together this list of FAQs to help you find answers to common questions.

Why doesn't Foundation 4 support IE7 or IE8?

Foundation 4 is mobile-first, meaning it relies on media queries to layer in more complex layouts and components. Browsers or devices that don't support media queries will be restricted to a simple, single-column layout. In some ways, Foundation 4 better supports IE6-7 inasmuch as it provides a mobile but not broken experience. In IE8 Foundation 4 will provide less than Foundation 3, but with IE8's market share in such steep decline we thought this was the right time.

If IE8 support is important for your users / customers, you can use Foundation 3.2, which supports IE8. It's not mobile first but it's pretty good stuff.

Can I use Foundation for something I'm going to sell?

Yes! Foundation is licensed under the MIT open source license, meaning you can do almost anything with it. The only thing you can't do is imply that Foundation itself is what you're selling.

Is Foundation tested on [some other device or browser]?

We try and be comprehensive in our testing, but there are thousands of devices so it's often just not feasible. We'd love to hear about Foundation's behaviour on other devices, but the list above is what we test each release on. If your browser or device is not listed your results may vary.

Where can I find the Foundation 3 docs?

For those of you still working on Foundation 3 sites, or who need to continue supporting IE8 with Foundation, we keep the Foundation 3 docs available. View the Foundation 3 Docs →

This is a modal.

Reveal makes these very easy to summon and dismiss. The close button is simply an anchor with a unicode character icon and a class of close-reveal-modal. Clicking anywhere outside the modal will also dismiss it.

Finally, if your modal summons another Reveal modal, the plugin will handle that for you gracefully.

Second Modal...


This is a second modal.

See? It just slides into place after the other first modal. Very handy when you need subsequent dialogs, or when a modal option impacts or requires another decision.
