Publishing site not showing all the site definitions/site templates

Problem:
While trying to create a sub site under a publishing top level site, you will see only "Publishing site with workflow" site definition in the available templates. You can not see any other site definitions like team site and document work space.


Fix:

Site Actions -> Site Settings -> under look and feel -> Page layouts and site templates -> select the templates that you want to be available for the sub site creation.
