[bioontology-support] bioportal_core

The simplest way to add ontologies is to use an HTTP POST. You can see a 
sample of this in the BioPortal source code (also attached):

If you put this file on the same domain that you're hosting the 
BioPortal Core from it should work. Otherwise, you'll need to change the 
'action' attribute in this line to match your location:
<form name="testForm" method="post" action="/bioportal/ontologies" 

The form has a list of category ids, you'll need to change these to 
match your installations if you want to use them.

The form includes the required parameters. There are other options which 
you could modify the form to include:

In addition, you could install the BioPortal UI, which has a little more 
comprehensive submission form.

If I can clarify any of this, please let me know.
