Get related pages?


While saving a page I want to check which pages are related to it similar to whats happening when you move a page to the recycle bin.

I found this tutorial on how to build a plugin in edit to do this but I want to do this in code so this way doesn't really help me.

Any advice is much appreciated

What do you mean by related?
Do you want to get all content that has a reference to your page?

The contentRepository has a GetReferencesToContent method you could have a look at.

You can have a look here of how to use it

Basically you would want to hook into the Publishevent with an InitializationModule and run your code there :)

Here's how you can hook into the event:

public class InitializationModule : IInitializableModule {
	public void Initialize(InitializationEngine context) {
		var contentEvents = ServiceLocator.Current.GetInstance<IContentEvents>();
		contentEvents.PublishingContent += contentEvents_PublishingContent;

	public void Uninitialize(InitializationEngine context) {
		//Add uninitialization logic

	void contentEvents_PublishingContent(object sender, EPiServer.ContentEventArgs e) {
		var contentRepository = ServiceLocator.Current.GetInstance<IContentRepository>();
		var related = contentRepository.GetReferencesToContent(e.ContentLink, includeDecendents: false);

Yes GetReferencesToContent worked. Strange i wasn't able to find that solution by googling. I instead reflected EPiServer.UI.dll on an episerver 6 site and checked how it was done there.
