cannot see thumbnails or download additions on this forum

Hey, dont know if this is the right forum for this but I didn't see a forum for issues related to this site.

I just bit the bullet and purchased this software instead of vb4. I signed up with my facebook account which is associated with my hotmail account, but bought the software with my gmail account. (I use hotmail for all my spam mail and gmail for important things) then I logged into my account and manually changed my email from hotmail to gmail, yet I still get the error "you do not have permission to view this page" when I click on a thumbnail or download link.
