How can i insert strings to UFOpedia?

I know, {NEWLINE} its work, but others?

I wanna insert example this: STR_BUILDING_RESOURCES , but show the original code, not the result.

Thank you!

You can't, `{NEWLINE}` is special marker not string. There only handful of makers like this available in text.

Overall something like this could be theoretically possible but will require lot of new code to support it.

Code: [Select]
{NEWLINE}
{SMALLLINE}
{ALT}
{0}
{1}
{2}
{3}
Where numbers are places where predefined values are inserted.

{NEWLINE} - makes a new line
{SMALLLINE} - switches to small font
{ALT} - changes to secondary color

I wanna insert example this: STR_BUILDING_RESOURCES , but show the original code, not the result.

I have no idea what this means.
Please better description and some examples.

I working on this:

Code: [Select]
ufopedia:
      STR_DEPLOYED_LARGE_WORKSHOP_UFOPEDIA: "This is a building of prefabricated elements that can be drawn up within a short time. A workshop contains all the equipment necessary to manufacture equipment based on designs from the science labs. Up to 400 engineers can occupy a workshop and 25 storage space for resources. Items under construction will also consume some space.{NEWLINE}{NEWLINE}Resources for construcion:{NEWLINE}STR_SPECIAL_RESOUCES: 4{NEWLINE}UFO_NAVIGATION: 2"

extrastrings:
STR_SPECIAL_RESOUCES: "Special Resouces"
STR_UFO_NAVIGATION: "Ufo Navigation"

But strings not working, i see the code, not the result. But now i understand can not work (yet).
