Show GreyBox Pop Up Only Once?

Hi Everyone,

I'm new to this, so bear with me...

I need a cookie that will make the pop up that displays (wait 10
seconds) only pop up once
per user. How can I do that with a cookie? PLEASE HELP

Here's the site: http://www.saveourbones.com/

Thanks in advance! You guys rock!

Hi Peter,

Thanks for your reply—I actually don't know where to start, so I
didn't try anything. The pop up window is on a 10 second delay and is
called using the "onload="Func1Delay()"" function. Does that help?

I would be happy to pay someone via PayPal if they can give me the
code to add, so that the pop only shows once per visitor.

Thanks!

Usually code requests on comp.lang.javascript are ignored as someone
wants a free lunch. You say you are willing to pay so this is a test
of human honesty.

Paypal is actually having some problems right now. Please send me an
email and we can discuss payment.
