Set to false to disable use of the database fields introduced by the ContentHandler facility.
This way, the ContentHandler facility can be used without any additional information in the database.
A page's content model is then derived solely from the page's title.
This however means that changing a page's default model (e.g. using
$wgNamespaceContentModels) will break the page and/or make the content inaccessible.
This also means that pages can not be moved to a title that would default to a different content model.
Overall, set to
false, no database updates are needed, but content handling is less robust and less flexible.
