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!

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:
This is a very complex concept and you made it easy.
Thank you Thank you Thank You
How many times was i forced to completely change layout because of this problem with modules showing/not showing somwhere. Hours of work, adjust widths, etc....
Man you are a genius. And this piece of code SHOULD BE as default in Joomla!!!
Let's hope J!1.6 has better module assignment control.
if you put the advanced options to bottom of module page, design of page will be more better ;)
In the new version I will move the options to the parameter slide tabs on the right. Thanks for the tip.
