That sounds cool... Is there any SEO draw backs that might happen with this method?
It is a wordpress site so I will have to figure out how to set the animate file to be the default load file. I was hoping there would be someway to put a script or something in the head.php of my site that said to stop loading and load in background, execute this edge file and then transition into the document. This way when search engines index it they will see the normal DOM for a website.
If there is no such method as I am describing I think what you have suggested will at least work for now... Thanks so much!
p.s. very to the point and helpful answer Thanks, sorry about earlier...

No worries about earlier
As for SEO purposes, I am not sure how search engines treat a page that transitions to another page.
Since you are using WordPress, why not use a standard start page (home.php) template, full width and no sidebar, and place the Edge Animate project within that page. At least that way that page is 'part' of the WordPress site and you can use any of the SEO plugins to handle the optimization. Just be sure to utilize Edge Animate Accessibility > Title option for your elements, images and symbols and use the Publish settings Web > Publish Content as Static Html.
Thanks so much! I will give it a go...
