Im fairly new to Drupal. Coming from Joomla. I created content type that works flawlesly and now i would like to take that form thats in the admin area and show it on front end for public to fill out.

Is this easely possible or do i need to use the Form API and rebuild the form and some how map to the fields in DB ?

Please let me know whats the best way to go about this.

Under /admin/people/permissions you can grant a role access to create/edit/delete content of a specific type.

Look for the sub-heading Node and pick your content type from any listed. I've highlighted Poll in my example.
