Sorry, bad mv_metadata definition for that catalog. This will be corrected
as I totally revamp the layout editor.
In the interim:
1. Log in as a super user to the UI.
2. Make sure you turn on meta links:
Quicklinks -> Preferences -> link at bottom
3. Navigate to the Item editor
--- Edit any item.
--- Follow the "meta" link for the field "category".
4. mv_metadata editor for products::category
--- select widget type "Combo select"
--- select filter type "Null select"
--- Click OK button
5. Navigate back to the item editor.
At that point, you should be able to type in any text and it will
show up as a new category.
