Could you try to clear the cached CSS and reload the page, please?
I followed this: https://stackoverflow.com/a/20300440
But it looks exactly the same.
Tried F5, Ctrl+F5, completely new tab.

Sorry, there was a mistake in fonts.css. Fonts should be fixed now.

Yes, now it works.

By the way, can the download button be placed on the left of the "About" menu entry?

Yes, it's possible via WordPress dashboard > Appearance > Customize (or the Customize button on the top panel). But personally I'd stick to standard "Logo - menu - download" layout found on all major renderer's and other software websites. It just fits to the "don't make me think" design approach.

My idea was along the same lines :) - I think most people visit the website to download the latest version.

Bump.

I'm sure this has been discussed elsewhere, but shouldn't the old website (which doesn't even work reliably right now) redirect to luxcorerender.org? Error pages aren't a good look, and it would help get the tasty, tasty Google juice from the old site as well.

We have very limited to no control over the old site. No one remember/know how to use the old CMS (it was custom code developed more than 10 years ago). It is one of the reasons we created the new one. As far as I remember the old domain should have also expire very soon. I'm afraid there isn't very much we can do.

Ah, that's a shame. Are there any plans to re-register the domain when it expires and point it over here?

I never liked very much the luxrender.net domain: ".net" has always sounded wrong to me.

OT: We had a political party in my country with name that would translate literally to "net" ... Of course people made fun of their leader that he's a spider and of course they failed terribly... Although, "web" and "net" might be used as describing different things, here it sounded very very bad :D
