Magento 2.3

After adding a sentence to the main description and adding information to the short description on the product pages of admin, these changes do not display in the front end.

I've flushed the cache and re-indexed the indexer.

  • May be description is set on store level, try to change store view and update description. And then check if it is updating on frontend Commented Jun 3, 2019 at 4:47
  • Where my content for product is it says 'Description' with [Store View] underneath. Is this what I'm changing?

The Description and Short Description will not display with a Simple Product created from a Configurable Product. The frontend will only display content that you input on the main Configurable Product.
