Have you made forums or just categories so far?

'In Administration Control Panel (ACP) > FORUMS > Manage forums make a new forum.

Forum type: Category
Parent forum: No parent

Set permissions for category.

Then make another forum.
Forum type: Forum
Parent forum: the category you just made.

Set permissions for forum.

To set permissions, either use the option to copy permissions from an existing category or forum that has the desired permissions, or:
Administration Control Panel (ACP) > Permissions > Group forum permissions
Set the registered users to be able to see and post in it:
Registered users > Standard access

A forum has to be in a category.

A top level category will not show without a visible forum inside it.

Follow that guide I posted.

Are you in the registered users group?

You can trace the problem with the permission masks

Bottom of the permissions menu is the masks section

If you choose forum based permissions and then on the next screen select that forum/category that you know you should be able to see and then enter your username in the bottom left box, on the next screen you'll get the permissions for that forum.

On the left of the line for 'can see forum' you can click the O-> icon and it will show you the groups you're in and where the blocked permission is coming from.

Post a screenshot of the pop up window you get.
