Are form and form block mandatory for the filter UI elements or are they best practices "only"?

They are mandatory for the system. It was built as a solution that can manage enterprise-level filters. Forms allow for natural accessibility and screen reader functions. This also takes out the requirement to have multi and exclusive labeled filter groups.

Can I still use CMS Library if I want to?

You can if you want to. However, we highly recommend building any new projects with Attributes. Once we understand the difference between CMS Library and Attributes, you won’t want to use CMS Library. We also recommend converting active development projects that use CMS Library. Converting to Attributes is going to make everything look, feel, and function better.

I need more than two sliders on the same page connected to different collections, any tips?

This can easily be done using attributes, for your second slider onwards you need to add -x to the end of the value, "x" being a unique numeric identifier. Example for your second instance of the slider "fs-cmsslider-element = list-2" and "fs-cmsslider-element = slider-2" and so on.

Infinite scroll makes elements to move erratically off the screen, any fix?

This is caused by the threshold that has been set for when the infinite scroll is triggered (fs-cmsload-threshold = -20) play around until you find a value that works best.

It uses the current state as if it were styled for a page. Choose your filter element, in the settings set it to the current page you’re on - it will show the ‘current’ state in the styles panel. Style accordingly then remove the link to the page.
