Comments not stripped out?

Hi, new at Hugo. When I build the /public dir with just “hugo -v” the html comments are still in the resulting index.html files. Aren’t the comments supposed to be stripped out? I don’t want any commets in production html. What am I missing? Thanks

what’s your Hugo version?

Also, are you using HTML comments or Template comments?

Hugo Static Site Generator v0.55.6-A5D4C82D2/extended linux/amd64 BuildDate: 2019-05-18T08:08:34Z

the comment are html

wrote a little bash script to clean them out ftm

I just tested this in 0.55.6 and my comments were stripped out.

Possibly your comments are formatted specially? Share an example one with us that isn’t getting stripped.

If you build with the following, HTML comments should be stripped out:

hugo --minify

Let us know if that works!
