In my website , I allow to the new user to write posts.

but the problem is when the user write post. the state of post is publish. it is appear in front page.

I want to read it before the publish , I mean I want to approve it if it is useful or refuse it if it unuseful.

I wish you understand me.

Thank you very much ,

What role are you assigning to those users? According to Roles and Capabilities documentation in Codex it should be Contributor for users that are allowed to write posts, but not publish them.
