Foundation Framework

Foundation is a responsive front-end framework. Foundation provides a responsive grid and HTML and CSS UI components, templates, and code snippets, including typography, forms, buttons, navigation and other interface elements, as well as optional functionality provided by JavaScript extensions. Many popular WordPress themes use Foundation.

If your WordPress theme uses the Foundation framework, WS Form can output forms that contain  HTML markup that is native to that framework. This means that WS Form physically changes the HTML so that your form dovetails seamlessly into your theme.

In addition to output native markup, WS Form will also change the breakpoint selector to match the available breakpoints in Foundation. This feature is only available in WS Form PRO.

All of the available WS Form field types are fully compatible with Foundation.
