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!

I have used AMM on a number of sites, and it's one of the most useful Joomla extensions out there.

I use this on every website I build. It makes maintaining the module layout of a site so much easier in the long run.

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've been using the free version for a couple of years and then decided to get the pro version (as a matter of support). The pro version is even greater than the free one. I recommend every one using Zoo, K2 or Virtuemart to get the pro version. It add stremendous filtering features for your Joomla modules (the free version a litte les but also a lot!). I use the color options for my clients to make their lives easier regarding what module belongs to which group and which module cannot be touched without advanced skills. It works better to have a visual color along the module note than just the text note. Very useful! Nowadays I even get annoyed when working on a site that doen't have the Advanced Module Manager installed :-D.

This extension really is very important for websites which explores conditional exhibitions of it's modules. I wouldn't call "advanced" but yes "extended", because is very straightforward to use, out of the box. Once you start using, you'll never let it out. Also, will start to create conditional modules based on time, user type, templates, components and much more... awesome! Dev score a lot!

Thanks for the review :)

I'll let you do my support for a week and you'll know why I call it advanced! ;)

I have to say, that this should be in a joomla allstar category! Easy to use, keeps all your modules in line, really easy to use. This is the reason I use Joomla, awesome!

It had mobile detection built into the advanced module options so I can hide modules on detection of a mobile device. You just saved me hours of work.

Good thing I scrolled down to play with the options a little more.

AND I can set the display of modules to query strings.

Peter, you're making my life a lot easier.

Thank and keep up the good work.

I've been using several of Peter's extensions for sometime and they are fantastic. I particularly love the idea of extending their own individual powers by combining them but very quickly the possibilities become so great, my head starts to hurt.
I have recently 'Gone Pro' and while the cost may appear steep at first, you quickly become delighted with the value they provide.

This is really great! I think this is a "must have" on Joomla 1.5; otherwise you need this on Joomla 2.5 only if you have "advanced" needs because the core module management of 2.5 is better than 1.5; for example I use this to show any modules only to public users, and hide them to registered.

I need some modules in article view only and this extension easily give me that. A lot of option! Really advanced.

Though AMM has some compatibility problem with T3 framework (some modules will not save after edit). You need to switch AMM to slide layout to solve that.

This well designed and well maintained addition is a must-have for any serious Joomla site. I cannot imagine building a site without using it !!!!

Excellent job Peter!

Yes, you can hardly do a really personalized website without this amazing extension.

I finally bought the PRO version, even if the free version already brings quite much possibilities. Basically, just get it: you need it!

I hope it's gonna get even better, and that at some point it will be 100% compatible with other extensions' modules' backends.

In some case indeed, some extensions are not respecting certain standards for displaying the Joomla backends in the 'Modules' section, what makes the use of those extensions a problem (sometimes you cannot select options etc...).

I'm personally putting pressure on those developers, to make them update there products, but may be there's a way to get a 100% compatibility without this.

Anyway: you just need AdvanceModuleManager.

Good on ya. Put that pressure on them! :)

This extension makes possible what seemed impossible before: Just place your module wherever you want!

I am still amazed how well this extension has been thought trough - because there simply does not miss a thing - you always find a way to position your module exactly where you want - the options are almost endless!

Cannot believe that this extension is still for free. It should be part of the Joomla Core.
