you missed some steps to enable the custom site templates. You have to add the custom site templates in page layouts and site templates settings. To enable that, go to the site settings -> select Page Layouts and Site Templates(under Look and Feel section) -> in subsite templates section, select subsites can only use the following site templates option and you can select the site templates you want to use.

  • i followed your steps but i cant find these custom templates under page layouts and site templates.

Check whether you have limited what templates were available in the site via the /_layouts/AreaTemplateSettings.aspx page (typically only available in a publishing site). You might want to check to make sure that all templates are available for creating sites.

Also check with the publishing feature as it should be activated while creating template sub-site.
