You can set a cookie on the user's machine and check that cookie each time the home Edge animate file loads. This variable can set at initialize and check that variable each time you show the home page.
Helpful tutorial on setting and getting cookies(in Stage/CompositionReady event):

Thanks and Regards,
Sudeshna (or anybody else),
I thank you for the URL's. I read the links you provided and using their sample code I believe I can cobble together a way to get & put a cookie. However, how do I integrate it into Edge? You mentioned the stage CompositionReady event, but I have no idea how to make my code work with these events. I really hate to ask this, but I need further help. As I pointed out, I don't know scripting languages (or modern high level languages for that matter). Now if you wanted help with early 1970's COBOL or FORTRAN I may be of assistance.
Let's say that I have the functions to A) see if a cookie exists B) set a cookie and C) clear the cookie. I'm guessing you'd want the functions to return true/false?
So...how & where specifically would I integrate these functions into Edge actions/events?
Here's about all I get at this point::
TRUE: do not run animation & display static (downstage) image
FALSE: set cookie true and run animation
I'm guessing that as a set cookie parameter I'd have the cookie expire when exiting the session?
Please, how do I get & set a cookie to activate the Edge actions? Can you show me specifically how to integrate the appropriate Edge variables or symbos or events to use the cookie code? Right now, this is beyond my primitive coding abilities.
I hope you or someone would assist further with this. Thank you so much.
