UTF-8 Characters Appear Garbled in Prod pt 2

I have the same problem on my site and despite trying several of the fixes reported on this forum, they don’t seem to have worked. Open to suggestions please!!

My site looks great on hugo server but not so great in prod.

Hi @broniatowski, I moved your post to a new thread, since the original thread was already answered.


sounds like you have to config your web server in the right way.
ask auntie google or the duck

Hope you will find the solution

Make sure your baseof.html layout file includes something like this:

<!doctype html>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1" />

The relevant part is the charset.

Thanks all – I had to contact my server admin to get the server to stop overriding my character settings per ju52’s recommendations. Problem solved!
