Following feed shows only the people you directly follow.
Global feed shows events from everyone in your extended network of follows that you have configured Iris to accept.
You can adjust your feed experience by setting the following distance limit (or turn it off entirely) from Settings / Social network. Your network starts from you and who you follow and goes forward from there.
You can also adjust the minimum amount of followers required per user at the maximum followed distance you have set that Iris will include in the feed. These settings apply to all your feeds (both Following and Global).
The Social network -settings are stored locally only. If you have multiple clients they are not synched between clients.
Settings / Social network
There're no restrictions on who sees your posted notes. All notes are public. Clients can change what the user views (see the feed and spam section) but it does not change the fact that nostr handles all notes as public for now (unless they are DM content), and you should consider everything as public.
For a quote note (you can also have more than one in a note), copy the NoteID (from the note menu) and paste it on the new note into the position where you want the quoted note.
Post a quoted note
Posting notes works also by pressing cmd/ctrl + return on your keyboard.
For mentioning a user when writing a note, type @ and wait for the menu to come out and choose the preferred user by clicking it from the menu.
How to mention users in a note
Video and audio uploads are supported on notes.
You can use "the attach media" option when writing a note or upload to imgur, nostr.build or a similar service and then insert the link to the note. The accepted file sizes and media formats depend on the hosting provider. Iris does not host any media.
Iris uploads to nostr.build when using the attach media option and inserts the media link(s) after a successful upload.
You can post media URLs (the link should end with .png .jpg .gif .mp3 mp4 or a similar media file format) and the media is shown in the note.
Notes can play audio such as mp3-files if your OS or browser supports it.
Embedded media formats
Youtube, IG, Spotify, Tidal, Twitch and Wavlake embeds play on notes.
Webtorrent magnet links
Notes preview and play Magnet webtorrent media links (may not work on mobile devices).
Undo and delete
There’s a delete option for notes in the note menu.
It’s up to relays and other clients to respect the delete request. Consider the delete on Nostr more as a wish than anything else. Hidden or ignored is not deleted. This is how nostr protocol works.
Unboosting and unliking work the same way (not available yet).
Make a request to delete a note
Notes can be muted without blocking the user. This is helpful if there are note threads with lots of replies and notifications.
Each note has a menu where you can find the Mute option.
Mute a note (thread)
Report notes and users (public)
You can publicly report users' posts. Reporting publishes a delete event for the reported note on Nostr.
The users you choose to report are blocked on your feed. The list of your reported users is public.
