Adding "NEW" on new product thumbnail

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.fvbrk.com/store

Hi! I've tried looking around and I can't seem to find what I'm looking for (possibly because I'm not sure what it's actually called) but I'm trying to add an image at the top corner of my product thumbnails that says "NEW" for new products. Is this a feature I am blindly skipping over or is this even possible on squarespace? A quick example would be the homepage of https://thehundreds.com/ in the "New Arrival" section (the red bomb with the word "NEW"; example image attached). Thanks in advanced!

On Squarespace, there isn't a way to automatically identify new products and tag them in this way (the site you quoted as an example was a Shopify site).

However, you can achieve this manually with some code. First add a 'new' tag to the required products. You can add tags and categories in the Product Composer (where you edit products).

Once you've added your tag you'll need some code to look for the tag and show a custom badge. I wrote a simplified guide for this here: Adding a custom status badge to Squarespace Products. There's a version for Squarespace 7.1 within the guide.

thank you for this! I tried following your steps and I don't think I did it correctly but I believe you get what I'm trying to do. How do I check to see what version of squarespace I have? Also, if I wanted to use an image instead, is that possible? Thanks again!
