We're using Magento v1.9 and if we change the Description and/or Short Description of a product, the new text does not show on the frontend. So, these 2 fields are not updated properly.
Any help is most welcome!
If you are using a multistore, make sure you are editing in the correct store scope:
If you are editing the default values, make sure that in the specific store view the "Use default value" option is checked:
If not, then changes made to the "default values" scope will be overridden by whatever is in the "Default Store View" scope.
Clear cache and Re-Index data. That should do it for you.
Most properly, this might be a cache issue. clear all the cache specially clear the full page cache if you are using magento EE.
