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!

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...
Go ahead like this (:
Only one question..
Why did you encode a file, and which?
Thanks for your review.

What do you mean 'NOT affiliated'? You're my brother... kiddin' :)
Thanks for the lovely review though!
Joomla's power is that you don't need to have all the good stuff in the core, seeing you can download and install most of the 'must haves' for free.
Great advantage of this not being in the core is it's update/improvement cycle. Once things are in the core, development on them is rather slow.
The only thing I would like to see is similar functionality for template selection. If we could automatically apply a template to certain sections or menus, and keep this same functionality on automatically assigning modules to templates, it would create an awesome circular loop, and add everything to articles when they are submitted.
Thanks for the review.
Regarding template assignment: it is core functionality to be able to assign templates to certain menu(items).
But for more control you can take a look at MetaTemplate Pro by Stephen Brandon:
