Joomla Module Management & Assignments
Modules make up areas of your Joomla website and contain components such as menus, logins, banner ads etc.
To edit, make and assign which pages you wish the modules to appear on you need to have back end access to your Joomla website.

To make non-continuous select of items
- windows = ctrl+click

Trouble Shooting & Advanced Tips
How do I assign module to appear or not appear on Virtuemart and other component pages?
Sometimes the standard Joomla module manager does not enable you to control your modules as you need. In this case we recommend the Advanced Module Manger from NoNumbers
There is a Free version which adds a great deal more functionality and a paid for version is just about essential if you are using Virtuemart or the Zoo component.
