In the past (like 3 years ago or so), I had come up with an idea of MD offering the possibility to add a layer on top of the feature image. I can't find the exact post again but here is a quick recap...

It could a triangle appearing on top of the left or right-hand corner of the feature image.
We could select the color of that triangle/shape as well as the text that goes within.

That way, we could automatically add on top of the feature images any mention such as: BEST OF 2022, TOP 3 Choices, Most Likes Post, etc.

Any progress or plan on this?

Hi @Some French Dude, I like the idea so I made a quick Drop-in for this. Here's what it looks like on top of an inline featured image (left, right, center, above/below headline).

To add to your site:
  1. First, update to MD5.4.1.1 from your WP admin panel
  2. After the upgrade, download featured-image-badge.zip from this post
  3. Install and activate the drop-in to WP admin > MD > Drop-ins > Add new

  4. Edit any post and edit the Featured Image Extras settings.

Hey @Alex, here we are again with me happy to contribute to MD features, evolution and community ;-)

That's a great start but I barely noticed the "NEW" flag at first glance.

Below are drafts of what I had in mind that I just made for you quickly.
The second option seems more to be more noticeable, effective.
Ideally, you can choose the location of the ribbon, its size and color. ;-)

Hope that helps.

I'll try to make another pass at it at some point with some custom CSS.

Not sure if this could be applied to ANY image, not only the feature image. That would be super cool.
