I am using Sitecore 9.1

I recently deleted an item (let's call it A) and selected Link to another Item when presented with the Breaking Links dialog, redirecting these links to a new item (B). This means that items C and D now point to B instead of A. When I publish B and select publish related items, items C and D are not published... According to the Sitecore Documentation I have read, this seems to be because items that B links to are considered related, but not items that link to B. Is there a way to easily publish all the items that link to B or do I have to do this manually? (In my example there are only 2 items linking to B, but in fact, there are closer to 60, so publishing them manually is going to be hard.)

  • you can try publish related items as well in publishing dialog box. Commented Dec 10, 2021 at 13:07

You can use Sitecore Powershell Extensions to achieve what you need.

You first need to call Get-ItemReferrer function and then Publish-Item on every item you get from the first function.

$linkedItemId = "{00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000001}"
$itemsLinkingToMyItem = Get-ItemReferrer -Path $linkedItemId

foreach ($itemLinkingToMyItem in $itemsLinkingToMyItem) {
    Publish-Item -Item $itemLinkingToMyItem




Try to use the "Publish Item" with both "Republish" and "Publish related items" together if I understood you properly:

Also make sure, that C and D are in the Final workflow state and have no publishing restrictions and the link database is up-to-date.

As an alternative, you can use SPE script or the custom patches similar to: https://abarhoum.wordpress.com/2016/08/29/deep-publishing-of-related-items-with-sitecroe-experience-editor/
