Interesting... So, I understand from your second email that these descriptions were created via CSV import? Might it be possible for me to take a look at the CSV file? If so, please feel free to send it to me off-list.
In the meantime, the first thing I'd suggest is running a few of our maintenance commands and restarting services to see if this is just a display issue, and not actually written to the MySQL database.
As a first step, I'd suggest: rebuilding the nested set, re-generating your slugs, and then clearing the cache, restarting PHP-FPM and memcached, and finally, repopulating the search index. Since you have a custom theme, you may also want to recompile the CSS for the theme. All of the following commands should be run from the root AtoM installation directory - if you've followed our recommended installation instructions, this is generally /usr/share/nginx/atom.
Recompile your theme's CSS:
To run this command, you will need to know the name of your theme plugin. It should be visible in the user interface in Admin > Themes.
Below are instructions for recompiling the CSS for the base Dominion theme. You may want to run the command on both Dominion and your custom theme, if your custom theme extends the base Dominion theme. Here is how you'd do it for the Dominion theme:
- make -C plugins/arDominionPlugin
Repeat the command for your custom theme, swapping in the name of the custom theme plugin where the above command says arDominionPlugin.
Rebuilding the nested set:
- php symfony propel:build-nested-set
Note: if you run this command with the --delete option, then any manual slug changes you have made (using the Rename module to edit slugs, for example) will be reset. Running the command without the --delete option means only slugs that are missing will be generated - the delete option will replace all slugs.
- php symfony propel:generate-slugs --delete
Clear the application cache:
Restarting PHP-FPM and memcached:
On Ubuntu 14.04 with PHP 5.x:
- sudo service php5-fpm restart
- sudo service memcached restart
On Ubuntu 16.04 with PHP 7.0:
- sudo systemctl restart php7.0-fpm
- sudo systemctl restart memcached
Repopulating the search index:
- php symfony search:populate
