Trailing slashes

Netlify adds some HTML to forms and images as additional inputs and trailing slashes. The HTML validator now gives a warning for trailing slashes. Which is good, but a bit annoying when I can’t edit the HTML.

@leonp Yes. There is one tag that Hugo (I think) adds to themes that causes the validator to throw an "information" flag for a trailing slash. @manton
