The quickest and simplest way to upload a turtle from your BioLogo application to a portfolio in your Turtle Web account is to perform a Paste Turtle command.
First, before you can upload a turtle to the Turtle Web website, you must evolve one in your BioLogo application. If you are not clear on how to do this, please refer to the BioLogo QuickStart guide here: http://www.evolvedturtle.com/turtleweb/doc.do?page=quick
Login to your Turtle Web account.
Click on the Portfolios link in the navigation bar at the top of the page.
Click on the "Paste Turtle" link in the "Portfolios" menu on the left side of the page.
Select "My Favorites" from the Turtle Portfolios combobox when the Paste Turtle page appears.
Enter a turtle name in the Turtle Name field.
Modify the pensize and maxsteps fields if you wish.
Enter a note for the turtle.
In the Population window of your BioLogo application select the turtle that you wish to upload.
Select Copy from the Edit menu to copy the turtle's program to your computer's clipboard.
Back in your browser:
Click the mouse in the Turtle Program text field to move the text focus to that input area.
Select Paste from the Edit menu to paste your computer's clipboard contents into the Turtle Program text input field.
Click the Upload Turtle button to send the turtle to the server.
At this point, your browser will upload the turtle's program and other information to the server. After a moment, your browser will be redirected to display the turtle's definition.
