Why does GEDCOMpare remove a slash in my URL links so they don't work?

Profile Andersson-12538 shows examples. It is a profile created by add from GEDCOMpare. For example the link:


was in the GEDCOM file (exported from Gramps):


The last slash was removed by GEDCOMpare. Similarly with the other links, and other profiles created the same way, so it seems to be a systematic error.

Please get that bug corrected. Is it a known bug someone is working on already? If I can be of any assistance with debugging, I will gladly volunteer.

Confirmed on https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Driehuizen-73

https://www.wiewaswie.nl/nl/detail27777062 should have a slash between detail and the number.

I have just tested this using a GEDCOM file exported from Family Tree Maker and it looks like the slash has been included in the correct place - see source 2 on Downer-931

It therefore seems the issue is something specific to the format of the GEDCOM file exported from Gramps (hopefully that might help to track down where the bug is).

The line that defines the link in the GEDCOM file, in my example, is the following:

0 @N0426@ NOTE https://app.arkivdigital.se/volume/v72422?image=182

If the whole GEDCOM file is needed for the debugging, it can be accessed here:

I have a note number as well (note the slash in the URL).

0 @N3164@ NOTE https://www.wiewaswie.nl/nl/detail/27777062

Paul, can you find that link in your Gedcom file? Comparing it could help creating a well documented issue for Abbie.

In my GEDCOM where it works correctly the link appears as:

3 _LINK https://app.arkivdigital.se/volume/v72422?image=182

I don't think this has been reported before.

I haven't used Gramps very much -- are all the broken links contained in notes that are attached to sources?
