We have a data feed that populates our store with product data, and a short description for each product is provided as part of that. When I edit the short description, then 'save and continue' the record is saved but the short description has returned to the original text. This does not happen with any other attribute of the record. I can edit and save changes to the long description; I can even add a new attribute set and update the values in those fields.
I could only find one reference to this issue on the web and the proposed solution was emptying the cache and trying again. This did not work for me.
Does anyone know what's happening?
