Please ignore or delete

i’m trying to follow the guide , i added my personal test website via

ipfs add -r mysite

and it’s visible on http://localhost:8080/ipfs/$hash but when i try$hash
it gives me the error

invalid ipfs path: selected encoding not supported

in the browser. i don’t know how to proceed from this point as there is no troubleshooting section in the docs. i have to admit i added my personal website instead of making the example listed in the doc. but it works fine locally? do i need to give it some time to be propagated to other nodes? did it just not “upload” correctly? how do i go about seeing what the issue is?

ipfs swarm peers

shows more than 20 peers

turns out i wasn’t supposed to add the $ sign before the hash, i don’t know how to delete posts
