ALTER TABLE oc_order_option ORDER BY `order_option_id`
everything is OK now.
Something odd about Opencart admin New Order code: It seems to put product's options into database table oc_order_option in a random way, not according to option sort order. That may seem impossible but I have verifed through many test orders. In other places, like admin Order History, admin and customer new order and order update emails, display of product's options seem to be taken from that table so reflect the random sort.
I need mod that replaces Opencart codes for admin New Order product options, and admin Edit order product options, with code that ensures entry into table with correct sort order.
If the above is not possible, then I need mod to display product options in correct sort order in admin Order History, admin and customer email for new orders and updates. Same may be needed on store side.
