    Mouse on the Move is a new feature for the Secrets forums.

    Sometimes when we're out and about we'd like to tell our forum friends where we are, what we're doing a bit like facebook, but we don't want to have to try and login with our phone.

    Mouse on the Move is a new system which allows you to send a simple email which will get posted to the forum.

    You can even take a quick shap with your phone, send it and it'll appear here!

    We hope that we'll get some live Disney snapshots and reports but equally if you're out and about, why not email a quick status update or photo and tell us what you're up to :D

    It's really easy to do, just use your phone, desktop, laptop to send an email to: live@wdisneysecrets.com

    There are some things to remember:-
    1. You must send the email from the email address you used to sign up to the forum. That's how we know it's you!
    2. You must type at least a couple of characters before any picture to get it accepted
    3. Try and keep the photo size reasonable so it doesn't take too long for people to load
    4. Emails are copied into the forum at set intervals roughly every 10mins so don't worry if your post takes a few minutes to show up :)
    5. Don't forget to type a subject for your post

    That's it! We hope this new feature will make it easier to interact with the forums when you're a Mouse on the Move :D

    ps. feel free to test it out, we'll delete the tests at the end of each day

    This sounds like an awesome addition to the forums...can't wait to try it (if I can just figure out my phone's web browsing thingamabobber). Thank you so much!
    Love isn't about finding someone you can live with.
    It's about finding someone you can share a lifetime with.

    Well... I just gave it a shot from my iPhone. We'll see how it plays.

    Does sound like a neat addition though!

    Edit: Works good!

    Keith,

    I just noticed that it took all the text after my picture (signature and iPhone blub) and rather than including it in the post directly, it added it as a text attachment. Is this how it's supposed to work?

    Hmmm... don't know how I did that? Sorry about the pseudo double post.

    I saw that too Tom... I think for the moment the answer is "put any text before the image" :) but I've noted it to see if it's something we can change for the future
