eScope Error Handler takes care about errors (usually 404) when something is missing at front end. Plugin takes "alias" from old URL and ask database of articles if this alias exists. If it does, plugin redirect user to this article. If not, plugin calls com_search and puts words from alias to search. User don't get error 404 anymore. Just relevant results.
