Hi, welcome to phpBB.com! :)

In order for new forums to be visible, you first need to set permissions to both the forums and the category it is situated in. Go to ACP -> Permissions -> Group forum permissions and set the permissions for both the category and forum for the Registered Users group.

For some more information, see this: phpBB3 Permissions

There is also a 24-hour limit.
If you set the Registered Users to standard access for all categories and forums, you should have no problems seeing those forums.

Hi,
I just walked in. I had been talking to you on the Facebook page. Let's break things down.

Once you click on the Permissions tab, you'll see a menu on the left. You want to set Forum Permissions here, because you want to allow access to your forums. Under the FORUM BASED PERMISSIONS header, click "Forum permissions."

In this section, I like to click the bottom section, and that allows you to set permissions for a whole section at a time.

Here's a page where I already have permissions assigned to the groups in the Manage groups section. Do you have all your groups in the Add groups section? Click on each group or highlight multiple groups, then click Add permissions.

Does seeing that make a little more sense? Let us know what you have by adding screenshots if you're stuck.
