Joomla add listing gives "you are not authorised" message

I am working on a Joomla 1.5 site, www.middletownareamerchants.com and it is working pretty well with the main menu and user menu.  I named them visitor menu and member menu.  When a new user signs up they get the welcome email that they can click on the link to confirm.  Once they confirm, they can log in to the site, but when they go to "add listing" (this is the web links) they get a message that says "you are not authorised to view this resource".

When i go to create an account the user name field is not writable in Firefox. Make any item that should only be seen by registered users access level registered. Then you know that only people who are actually logged in are seeing private info areas. Also this will test whether they're getting the unauthorized message because they're actually not logged in, which I think is the case.

Edit - Firefox is irrelevant to last post, first sentence. This is a server side issue. A guest shouldn't be able to edit an account.

I can make the add listing and edit account only visible to registered users.  My problem is that registered users can't add a listing.

The Five Tenets of the Most Secure Backup

Data loss can hit a business in any number of ways. In reality, companies should expect to lose data at some point. The challenge is having a plan to recover from such an event.

are you sure they're logged in? confirming an account is not logging in.

Yes, I have tried setting up new accounts, logging in, then trying to add a listing.   I get the message "you are not authorised to view this resource".

In global config set new user reg type to author rather than registered.

Joomla php:  thank you, setting the users to author instead of registered lets them add a listing.  Isn't it supposed to work though for registered users?  When I added the feature it says "allow registered users to add a link"

I think it's a semantic issue/mis-print - authors are registered users, though not all registered users are authors.
