Problem resolved. Read post #4 here.
Would be nice if a popup or something warned of this when posting a message.
eg: "New member posts are moderated and will be not be posted for a few hours."
or something along those lines.....

Yes, I understand know, but as the previous poster suggested perhaps a popup box that alerts the user the post is waiting the approval of a moderator. Right now the new user can keep posting the same message over and over again thinking something is wrong with the forum.
I understand now why this has happened, and it is a very good idea.
After the initial confusion I had while trying to post I thought that there may have been something like this in place, but after looking everywhere I could (FAQ, Guidelines etc.) found nothing to confirm it.
Some sort of notification or warning would be nice.
Possibly in the registration confirmation 'Action Required' email to new members?
A popup after an attempt to post would be the ideal solution.
