Fixing Hugo Images

Hugo made a change that broke image embedding using tags. Here’s how to fix it.

Lost some more time this morning. Finally wrote some more blog posts and saw that an embedded image did not post. Then found that ALL my images were gone.

Chased this around a bit, updated Hugo from source, fiddled more…

And then finally found the answer.


Hugo changed rendering engines for markdown. Edit your config.toml file and add this:

  defaultMarkdownHandler = "blackfriday"

Rebuild. Worked for me.
