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!

After spending days trying to figure out how to activate a module to an external menu link to no avail, I stumbled upon this lovely extension.
Downloaded, Installed and working in 5 minutes!
Seriously a very BIG BIG THANK YOU to the developer.
This is one great awesome extension that I have added to my favorites.
Im not biased or anything but this one has helped me so much and is always the first priority when i set up a new website. Couldnt work without it now that im used to it, should be part of Joomla core.
Support is also outstanding too. I have no idea how the developer does it but he seems to be able to work miracles and is a credit to the development community.
This is really usable, stable,it makes me wonder why there are some developers out there that not only offer way overpriced buggy stuff and lame support. Not the case here.
Thank you man you rock!!
I happened upon this searching for a solution to a fairly unique (I think) need, and it works like a charm and wasn't difficult to figure out at all. I have a demo site where I wanted public users to visit and at least be able to see menus that would normally (on the production sites) only be available to registered users, but on the demo some would work, and others not work. But I also needed a second menu that is fully functional (in the same module position as the "dummy" menus).
So I needed a full, but not fully functional menu for public users ONLY, and a second, duplicate and fully functional menu in the same place, identical in every way except actually functional, available to all registered users.
This plugin did the job.
I had another, more convoluted solution planned that involved creating a totally duplicated environment (duplicate articles and other features) that would, in effect, create a whole collection of "pages" for public users with certain features disabled, and a duplicate identical area where everything actually works, for registered users.
It would have worked, but even though it took me about an hour to fully understand how this plugin works, that was far less time than it would have taken to set up two completely different environments.
Awesome plugin! Thank you VERY much! :D
Then there was a conflict with the component and Joomfish! but Peter solved the issue in no time.
Got the site running and my problem solved!
This component should be Joomla! default...
