So, it’s the probably all night long deployment… And we went to create our first site and only had one template available, to publish with workflow.
Here’s how to get the others:
go to Site Actions > Site Settings > Modify All Site Settings then go to Page layouts and site templates under look and feel. From this menu, select Site Can only use the following site templates — select all the ones you want to use and all of them should show in the Create Site dialog.
