Is there a way to only display block on specific urls?

I've got a block in the right rail and I want to only display it on the home page. Is there a way, without having to disable it on every url, to limit it to the home page?

When we first set up sites, we usually change the regions in the right rail so that some inherit and some do not. If you have this situation, you can just put the block into a region that is not inherited by its children, and it will only be shown on the front page.

If your site has changed this and made all of the regions inherit, then yes, you will have to "dis-inherit" the region in order to separate it on the child URLs.

But I would recommend trying to re-order your right rail so that you have some regions that inherit and some that do not, and you can use them accordingly.
