Next.js hydration error

Just encountered React Hydration Error while using Next.js

Unhandled Runtime Error

Error: Hydration failed because the initial UI does not match what was rendered on the server.

Unhandled Runtime Error

Error: There was an error while hydrating. Because the error happened outside of a Suspense boundary, the entire root will switch to client rendering.

Above error messages are unintuitive and call stack traces don't give much clue where the source of error is.

#35773 <- some fixes are shared in the github discussion

React Hydration Error <- this link shows possible fix but still not very helpful

In my case, the cause was from an invalid HTML: missing tr tag in table

Invalid HTML may cause hydration mismatch such as div inside p.

Here are more examples of invalid HTML that could break Next.js hydration

Invalid tags inside <p>

<div> inside <p>

<p> inside <p>

<h1> inside <p>

<li> inside <p>


Incomplete <table> tag

<table> without either <thead> or <tbody>

<table> with missing <tr>
