When a user first visits my discussion site (designed for a mobile platform), I am using a long bar to contain first-time instructions. instruction bar

After they complete the registration process, this area transitions to a menubar because a registered user should no longer need instructions but rather a menu to navigate the.

menu bar

Is this an effective user experience tool or is it confusing? Is the appearance not unified? How can I improve this setup?

Without seeing the rest of the screens, I'd have to say that it probably is good ux.

Giving users options that they can't use during registration is counter-productive, so hiding them to keep the user focused shouldn't have any drawbacks.
