Shack Article Manager is the best extension to write and manage Joomla articles from your site frontend. 

One of our customers asked how to keep their Shack Article Manager pages as clean as possible. They wanted to hide any modules on Shack Article Manager screens. In this blog post, I'll show you how to achieve this with Advanced Module Manager from RegurlarLabs.com.
