The instructions above describe the new way of installing extensions using wfLoadExtension(), since MediaWiki 1.25. If you need to install this extension in earlier versions, instead of wfLoadExtension( 'GlobalNotice' );, you need to use:

require_once "$IP/extensions/GlobalNotice/GlobalNotice.php";
