I'm working with a new site collection in SharePoint Server 2010 Standard created using the Blank Site template. I would like to add a Content Query Web Part to one of my web part pages, however, this web part does not show up any of the web part category lists. I have already gone into Site Collection Administration → Site Collection Features and activated the Search Server Web Parts, but the CQWP still doesn't show up. Am I missing something?

In case anyone else is beating their head against a wall, CQWP is not part of SharePoint Foundation. Please see sharepointconfig.com/2010/06/… for details. –  user18178 Jul 11 '13 at 13:51

The Publishing Features need to be active on the site collection for the web part to appear. It can be activated from the Site Settings, Site collection features screen.
