Ax Kickboxing Forum

Live URL

Current Ax Site

A redesign and rebuild of PHP forum created that I have owned for over fifteen years ago. There have been plans through the years to rebuild the site. Those plans were put on hold until recently in 2015.

The current design of the production site is the 2nd major redesign. I redesigned the frontend and fixed many bugs in the backend in 2010. I modified the backend PHP code to fix bugs and improve features.

Ax Redesign Mockup

The plan

Redesign using modern frontend techniques (mobile-first, responsive, CSS pre-processing) and rebuild the site using Ruby on Rails.

The site runs on Linux with Apache and PostgreSQL.

Planning for this project is currently in progress as a side project.

As a branch off the Kickboxing forum, I had planned other services as well, including an events database and fighter database. I own the domains FightEvents.com and FighterDatabase.com for these projects.
