w4mp on new server

Welcome to w4mp.org, now running on WordPress.

After nearly ten years we’ve moved w4mp.org to a new server running on the popular and powerful WordPress platform. We believe this will let us give you a better service and allow us to offer new features that will make w4mp even more useful to you

It has most of the material from  the older sites. If you can’t find what you are looking for then the older pages remain accessible here although they may not be properly formatted and are no longer current, so you should not rely on the information they contain.

Please let us know of any issues you have with the site, or any errors/omissions you notice. You can email editor@w4mp.org or use the contact form.
