Hugo site generated using Avicenna theme does not render correctly

I am using Hugo static site builder on my Windows 10 machine. I am trying to build a simple homepage using avicenna theme. When I build the page locally using hugo server , it renders the page correctly in the browser, just like what you would see if you head to avicenna demo page (I cannot post image of my own page because as a new user I am limited to posting a single image).

But after I use the hugo command to build the final page and open the public folder, I find an index.html file which after I upload to my server, renders the page like below:

Here the problem is: (i) image is so enlarge and does not appear in the size that I see when I run hugo server, and (ii) the page layout appears to be messed up, again unlike what I see when I run hugo server.

I scoured online and found at some places (I am sorry, I don’t recall where) people had mentioned that one should change baseURL from to one’s own domain name which I did. At some other places, people had mentioned using relativeURLs = true and uglyURLs = true in the config.toml file. I did that too but in vain. Here’s what my config.toml file looks like:

relativeURLs = true
uglyURLs = true
baseURL = ""
languageCode = "en-us"
title = "Pierre Kahn"
theme = "avicenna"
googleAnalytics = "UA-1234-6"

interests="Macroeconomics, Asset Pricing, Finance"


I have avicenna theme in themes folder and I also tried uploading everything else that Hugo was generating in the public folder ( sitemap.xml and folders categories , css , js and tags ) but nothing worked. I have spent a lot of time trying to figure out what I am doing wrong but cannot figure out a way to fix it. Will appreciate any help.
