What can this extension do?
When using the search box, the default behavior is to Go directly to an article if it exists, or if it doesn't, use the search engine to find the given term. This extension allows the user to specify (under the "Misc" tab of "my preferences") the he wants to go directly into creating a new page instead of activating the autosearch when the given article doesn't exist.
If, instead, you wish to force this behavior for everyone, you don't need to use this extension; rather, simply enable
Straightforward. Simply follow the installation instructions and the option magically appears.

- Add the following to LocalSettings.php:
# If you would like the option enabled by default, set this to 1. $wgDefaultUserOptions['bypasssearch'] = 0; require_once("$IP/extensions/BypassSearch/BypassSearch.php");
