Advanced Module Manager is an extension that changes the way your Module manager works.
It adds a multitude of functions, like:
★ Many publishing assignments for your modules! You can control publishing modules by (ALL / ANY):
☆ Menu Item
☆ Date range
☆ User Group Levels
☆ Operating Systems
☆ Content Page Types
☆ ...and more...
★ You can also choose to mirror the assignment settings of another module!
★ Edit modules in modal popup windows
★ Give modules color labels in the module list for easy searching
★ Option to not show modules that have no output (handy for things like dynamic menus)
If you need even more module control, give MetaMod a try:
Advanced Module Manager is compatible with MetaMod Pro!

Thank you very much. This is a brilliant addition!!
And that's all neat, no doubt. But what makes Advanced Module Manager shine, what makes it a must have, why it should be in the Joomla core are the Module Assignment options. Regular Joomla allows you to assign a module to a menu ID, all menus, or no menus which is fine as far as it goes. But what if you're using a Joomla Category Blog view to show the intro text of articles with a read-more link for the full text? Without Advanced Module Manager (or some tricky programming) you'd have to show the same modules for the articles that you're showing in the Category Blog view. With Advanced Module Manager, you can assign modules to a menu item, but only show the module in an article view. Or show a module whenever a section, category, or article ID is shown no matter when menu it's assigned to. Got a component that doesn't remember Itemids? Not a problem, assign a module whenever a component is shown. Or you can turn on a module or turn it off on a given date. If none of these (or the half-dozen other options) work for you, you can write your own PHP code. Or you can use any combination of the above.
I've been able to craft Joomla pages with Advanced Module Manager that would have been all but impossible without. If you're struggling to get Joomla, and especially modules, to work just the way you want you have to get Advanced Module Manager. You'll quickly add it to your must-have extensions, at least until Joomla adds it's abilities to the core.
An absolute must-have for any Joomla site. The control over module placement is just about total. Haven't come up with a situation where one of the many options failed to do the job.
And Peter gives excellent quick responses to comments posted on his forum.
Yes, it's free, but you really ought to pay for it-- it's worth it!
The creators are brilliant and I would give this 10 stars if I could. Its flawless and does exactly what it says on the box.
If you are having problem placing modules then this extension is exactly what your looking for.
Keep the good work up guys I will be making a donation for your efforts.
Then I found this component and it's still Holy Crap but in the good way. :) This component can do everything I wanted and even some stuff I didn't even think of.
I couldn't recommend this component more. In fact I am planning on purchasing a license just to pay the developer for their efforts. This thing has saved me so much time it would be shameful if I didn't.
This one in particular is solving a MAJOR content re-use issue I was dealing with: Having "modular" content appear on section/category pages but NOT their article pages in positions other than the component position.
Well worth the time to download and install - and well worth the 30 Euros for ALL the extensions (or the 10 Euros for one) - not sure about the 75 Euros for unlimited domains...being that I don't have unlimited domains.
Dude - you're getting a write-up on my Newsvine column....
I may have overlooked it but if I could ask for anything more though it would be a possibility to see all menu items and all modules at the same time and then be able to map menu items to modules for the entire site in one single view.
A batch assign feature sort of...
