I am using Sitecore's RSS feed, which has a field for Items. You can set this field to a Sitecore query to find items within your website to show within your RSS feed.

I have it configured like so:

enter image description here

This is set to a value like so: query:/sitecore/content/Brand/home/insights//*[@@templateid='{guid}']

The Problem: when viewing the RSS feed, it appears that items are returned for all language versions. Is it possible to set the query: to be restricted by language?

1 Answer 1


The simple answer is NO, it cannot handle multiple languages. From the documention

Sitecore Fast Query does take the context language into account when it checks the value of non-shared fields. The query results therefore include all the items that have one or more language versions that match the query expression.

Also from the John West blog

Fast query does not account for the context language (results include items with versions that match the query in any language)

Better option would be to switch to Content Search, it will be better for scaling purposes as well.

  • Can you switch Sitecore's native RSS to content search?

    His question is regarding query:, not fast:. Perhaps the answer is the same, but there is a difference. Commented Jan 18, 2018 at 9:23
