Advanced Module Manager - control your modules the way it should be.

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
            ☆ Homepage
            ☆ Date range
            ☆ User Group Levels
            ☆ Languages
            ☆ Templates
            ☆ URLs
            ☆ Operating Systems
            ☆ Browsers
            ☆ Components
            ☆ Content Page Types
            ☆ Categories
            ☆ Articles
            ☆ Tags
            ☆ ...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!

All I can say is that I'm very sorry that this extension is 1) not part of the original Joomla install, and 2) I didn't find it long ago! I have been using a number of extension to accomplish various things and now that I have found this module I can do all without the need for adding numerous extensions.

Thank you very much. This is a brilliant addition!!

I've read a few reviews that indicate that this is a must-install module. Respectfully, I disagree. This is how module management should have been done by Joomla in the first place. First, there's the usability improvements. While you can drop down a list of positions you can type the desired location directly if you want. You have the ability to filter modules for menu assignment and access level. You can edit modules in a model pop-window rather than loading another page. You can even add a description to a module that shows up when you hover over a modules name.
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.

Have used this for quite some time and was finally motivated to post a review because I actually ran into a module Advanced Module Manager had a conflict with. Searched the AMM creator's support forum and immediately found a solution that works! Amazing.

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.

If I could I would give this component/plugin a rating of 10 stars. Whenever I find some poor benighted Joomla admin who DOESN'T have this installed, I point them to it immediately & rave about it. I literally cannot imagine trying to administer a site without this.

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!

This module can be compared to the God of all modules "And before all you religious types bombard this review accusing me of Blasphemy" I just can not think of another word to rate this module.

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.

It's solved a few problems I had, works very well without getting in the way at all.

I really wanted a way to automatically assign a submenu module to all child pages of a menu item and this does exactly that, and much more!

Well done.

this nice tool should be in every admins toolbox. It's easy to install and very useful to keep all your modules in control. Thanks for a good job and for sharing it. I also recommend their extension manager.

I have had a problem with a module which should only be shown on the startpage. But I have many URLs on my startpage which haven't an ID for the menu.
I don't know what I have done without this component!!!

I designed a template for Joomla with the intention of being able to control where modules are displayed and initially I found out that Joomla couldn't do that and in order to force it I had to make a hidden menu, make a hidden item in that menu, attach the module to that itemid and then attach a page to that itemid. Holy crap right?

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.

Once you have this extension installed once you will never go without it again! It gives you absolute control over your modules. Never have to get frustrated over modules showing in the wrong pages again. Very easy to install and use.

My #1 frustration with joomla 1.5 has always been the inability to exclude modules from specific pages. AMM solves this perfectly.

This really is a dream component and I'll never build another joomla site again without installing this first.

Thank You for the great component that makes it easier to customize my Joomla website. I never create a site without it.

Why don't the joomla team incorporate this in joomla 1.6
I've noticed joomla 1.6 (beta) has menu selection/exclusion for modules but this extension can do much more! I'm using it in all my joomla sites!
Thanks nonumber!
