Using Limesurvey without using a website

Hello!

I have a question. I downloaded LimeSurvey on my Macbook and made a survey. Is it also possible to get a link of the survey which you can just sent out to people so they can participate instead of having to download it and put it on a website? I can only find a link which is only availablefor the local host.
I changed the settings of the survey so that it is open to everyone, but then the survey should be listed at the "available surveys portal". I cannot find this portal. Is it the same as the "survey list"? Only there all my surveys are listed. Not just the ones I made public.

Thank you!

Yes for the moment your surveys exist only on your computer; you need to export & import those surveys to a similar installation...on the web. (you may be interested in LimeSurvey Professional (previously LimeService).com )

...then the survey should be listed at the "available surveys portal". I cannot find this portal. Is it the same as the "survey list"?

Yes, the index page listing (publicly available) surveys

Only there all my surveys are listed. Not just the ones I made public.

Seems to be a bug... It will be nice if you can report it at the bug tracker . ;)

Thank you for your reply! It helps a lot!
So I made an account on LimeSurvey Professional (previously LimeService).com, made the survey and now the URL can be send out to people because now the survey is on the internet?! Perfect!

I will report it at the bug tracker :)

Probably not a bug. I think you are confusing the public survey list (homepage of your site) with the admin interface survey list.
