Joomla 1.5 Displaying a banner on homepage - how to?

Hello.

Im trying to get an ad module to display on just the homepage (as it's a welcome/intro banner) but I can't work out how to do this. Ive tried setting the module parameters but it still displays on some pages besides the homepage. Any guidance on how to do this would be greatly appreciated.

In the admin menu from joomla, select modules, find mod_banner.
Select this module and in menu assigment, select there where you want to show the banner.

I did that and assigned it to home and whilst it works with the main menu links the issue of the banner displaying on pages I don't want it to persists - so when you navigate from the lefthand menu links, such as the manufacturer and category modules it displays again - thing is I don't want it to appear outside the homepage. Am I doing this wrong? should i be using a different module to create this banner? Take a look to see how this looks: http://ch-consultants.co.uk/

BTW Im using a template and have contacted the developer about this but they point to it being a Joomla issue and nothing to do with their template. They provided a plugin 'mod_showimage' to show an image in a module with clickable link address, which was supposed to help but it hasn't resolved this issue.

So Im wondering, do I have to create a unique banner for each manufacturer and category page (which I don't really want) in order to work around the fact that the module display can only be assigned to the main menu? Or is there another way? I just want to display product thumbnails on the manufacturer and category pages.

I think you mean the banner on the right site of the page, with "view our best selling".
Seems like it is linked to more then just the home page.
I normally select none in the menu assignment and save it.
After that I select "select menu items from list. Then you select only the home page.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

No, I don't mean the bestseller ad. I mean the welcome/intro banner at middle top that reads 'Welcome to Damselle Tiaras....' and I have tried a variety of menu assignment configurations and had already worked out to assign it to the homepage. The problem isn't the top menu but the lefthand menu, ie the manufacturer and category modules. I suspect that there is no way around this other than to create a unique banner on each of these pages. thanks for your help anyway.

Is this banner a module or is this an artikel?

If it is a module, then you can copy the module and assign the copy to another menu item.
The name of the module can be changed. As far as I know that the only way to create a unique banner on each page.
May be this extension can be of any help:
