Site Management, Error pages

eScope Product Handler solves big problem with old URLs which leads to 404 error page. Especially after upgrade from Joomla 1.5 to Joomla 2.5 and Joomla 3. Let's take a look at one example.

  • Favourite
  • Report

URL to one of my articles at Joomla 1.5 with ARTIO JoomSEF looked like this:

And after migration to Joomla 2.5 URL is

Now, if you click on the first old URL, it should lead to 404 error because this URL doesn't exist anymore. But thanks to eScope Error Handler plugin it redirects user to the new URL. Awesome, right?

Ease of use
Easy, but...
With his handler system, almost auto-finding the right page to redirect or givin a good chance with the result on the search page, this save me a lot of time instead than "playing" with the redirect system plugin.

Would be perfect adding a free space just before the search form, to add some html, like linking to a sitemap, a personal message, a link to an important page, whatever... Anyway I can only thanks for the super-easy installation and plugin activation. And it's work very fine on all my websites.

Great plugin, it works directly. and keeps your visitor on your site. with the genuine aspect and menu.

As already mentionned one needs to stop the original redirect Joomla component.

One question, where did you hide the en-GB.plg_system_escope_error_handler.ini file ? I'd like to change the notice.

I maintain the site of a small club, Joomla 3.2.1, template protosatr. I like clean and easy extensions. Thanks
Owner's reply: Thank you for review.

Plugin has language files at /administrator/languages/en-GB/.

It works!

This is such a good solution and it just works. Not a million options to work out. It's proved very popular with my clients.

Love it... now where is the one for V3?

Though I have installed the one for 2.5 which seems to work fine.

Great plugin

This plugin works as described, but without any documentation, it seems that most reviewers are missing that you need to unpublish the default Joomla Redirect plugin for this to work.

Once you do, the results are as described.

Thanks for the great plugin!
Appears not to be working, but it is difficult to tell or do anything, as there is no documentation.

would not redirect

did install without errors, but since it lacks any configuration options in backend is hard to tell why it would not work.

I use joomla 2.5 for website that was upgraded recently and would not redirekt from /kontaktoss to /kontakt-oss
