Notes can't be show in grampsweb

Linux Ubuntu 22.04
Package grampsweb · GitHub latest c52bd8342b5d

Some notes (created in desktop gramps) doesn’t open in grampsweb.
I see error 500 in grampsweb UI.
In docker container logs I can see the trace:

gramps.gen.errors.HandleError: Handle e3b6e8acfaf4b465fb3467f1aa1 not found

This can be connected with the note special format (the note contain some font sizes and link) or note hasn’t been synced properly with addon Gramps Web Sync. I tried to change it and resync but this didn’t help. I need help with further troubleshooting. I’d like to figure out if this issue of database syncing or it’s just grampsweb can’t show some special formatting.


I think the note contains a link to a media object which has been deleted, can you confirm?

If yes, I think Gramps Web API (the Gramps Web backend) shouldn’t throw an error but just omit the link. Can you please open an issue at Issues · gramps-project/gramps-webapi · GitHub?


No, this note contains only text with some font size specifications and also it contains web link to an external wikipedia page.
I created a github issue grampsweb either can't show formatted notes or synchronization issue · Issue #431 · gramps-project/gramps-webapi · GitHub
