I have a sharepoint 2010 portal. The site collection is from the site template "publishing site". When I would like to create a subsite I see the popup with the web templates. I see only 1 template with the name "Publishing Site".

Why I dont see other webtemplates which are OOTB from SharePoint?

What do I need to do to see more web OOTB templates?

See here what I see in the new site popup:

In the site collection, click Site Actions > Site Settings > Page Layout and Site Templates (under Look and Feel). Here you can specify which templates can be used for sub sites and which page layouts can be used for publishing pages on the current site.

  • I dont see page layout and site templates under look and feel, what to do? Is it some feature which I need to activate/deactivate?

  • What are your access privileges? I believe you must be site collection admin to change the setting at the site collection level.
