  • Hi John,
    Thanks very much for your reponse.

    Regarding #2, I updated the field definition by editing the field, that should be okay correct? Or does it need to be updated elsewhere?

    Regarding #1, the serialized string is identical in both cases where I manually replaced via mysql, and in a post that was saved directly.

    If you simply run var_dump(unserialize('a:1:{i:0;s:8:"Charcoal";}')); you get the expected output:

    array(1) {
      string(8) "Charcoal"

    So I’m just confused why updating the post_meta to something that’s identical as editing an item and saving it would produce different results unless I’m missing where this link is actually made in the db. I dumped the entire db, and searching for the term I only see it in post_meta so I can’t imagine it lingers elsewhere?
