Modules are assigned to "pages" using the module manager. In the administrator (back end) go to

Module>>Site Modules of

On the right you will see a list with a heading Pages/Items.

At the top of the list, you can pick all, none or unassigned to make an assignment for the entire site.

Underneath this list, there is a list of all the menu links in your site except those that are of type URL. Using this list you can select individual pages on which your module will or will not appear.

Notes: If your module is assigned to a position that does not exist in the template used to display a page, the module will not appear even if it is assigned to a specific page.

If your module is not published/enabled it will not appear even if assigned to a page.

You cannot assign a module to a URL link. This is because URL links do not have Itemids assigned to them. You also cannot assign modules to pages that are only linked via content or other, non-menu modules, because these also do not have Itemids.

One work-around for this problem is to have an unpublished menu that contains links to the items you wish to link through non-menus. This will create an itemid that can be included in the url you link to. You will see a list with a heading Pages/Items.
