So I was sooooooo proud of myself that I built a brand new responsive website for my one-woman law practice, but when I started my project I did not select new-with-components. Now I want my drop-down phone menu icon to hide/show my link list. Is there any way to add components later? Or do I have to start all over again?

Pretty sure you cannot add components to that project , but there might be a work around I just haven't figured it out yet

Yeah, that's what I'm afraid of. I'll add it to suggestions maybe, to be able to add components later.

Well good luck with that, I made the same mistake when I did my first FF try out, wasn't so big a deal for me because it was just a dummy build so I could get used to it.

I suspect the answer to that (importing components into project would be why, when we have a blank that includes components. (but I may be wrong) my question and suggestion would be why do they give us 2 choices, why not just the one (which includes components), because apart from that component bit, I can't see a difference between the two.

Anyway there are a lot of extras on Foundation builder blocks site which include some and more of the components, you have to put them into an HTML element and faff around with CSS (adding it to a custon-css file etc into your resources and then href to that file in your header for that page, which to be honest is almost as time consuming as re-doing it from scratch

here is the address of the site for the building blocks (still some cool stuff on there anyway to look at)

I just rebuilt it in the end. It wasn't that bad in terms of time, and version 2.0 is always better anyway. :P

Noooooooo! I'm having the same problem! Is there really no way to use those components if you opened a blank template without them?

I've built the whole site part from the menu! Gulp!

fraid not except putting them in as a third party html element (go to zurb building blocks to see what they have ) or building your own using what is there and doing some jiggery pokery with built in foundation classes, attributes etc. I have made a few things that way,eg, a responsive menu, a drop down menu and a modal type window,

Much easier to use with components next time (too late for this one)

Nice job Tygger well done for a first time. Now you need CoffeeCup Form Builder so you can build your contact form to match you site.
