Enable Ajax autocomplete search suggestions (autosuggest) while typing in search boxes (results are passed around in OpenSearch format).

This setting replaces $wgAjaxSearchManual:$wgAjaxSearch that was used in earlier versions of MW.

If you want to turn off autosuggestions now (as the feature has been removed), use $wgEnableOpenSearchSuggestManual:$wgEnableOpenSearchSuggest.


If you are using any version of MW 1.19 to 1.21 and also using Vector as you skin including the VectorExtension:Vector extension, you can get similar functionality by editing your LocalSettings.php and adding

$wgVectorUseSimpleSearch = true;

Starting with MW 1.22 this setting was moved to core and is enabled by default. Thus nothing needs to be done.
