The Initializr template is meant to be a simple one aimed at easing the kickoff to the HTML5 Boilerplate, hence it is free of fancy stuff like image carousels or drop down menus. But I needed a rotating image banner for my home page, so I did some research and found FlexSlider. I tried fitting FlexSlider into the Initializr template and after 30 minutes or so, it was working well!
