Hi everyone,

I just ran into an odd problem with my instance of Opencart. Whenever I go to edit an item, it's associated "short_description" field (which is typed BLOB) is cleared. The blob is just a text file containing things like product name, size, qty.

I am not the one who set this system up years ago so please excuse the noob-ness of this question, but is there a way to have the system regenerate this data?

We are currently running Version

I would suggest there's got to be a more reliable way of getting what you want. I would clone your site, upgrade the cloned site to OC and play around with some of the product extra info field extensions. That's my 2 pennyworth.

Hello Jackdan,

For BLOB type fields, you need to convert that binary data into image, as BLOB type creates a binary file for image.
You must try creating actual image from binary data.
