Show Web Template

Carrying on from my previous post Hide Web Template, this post demonstrates how to show a web template in the New Site dialog for a specific web using a PowerShell script:

		$availableWebTemplates = $web.GetAvailableWebTemplates(1033);
		$availableWebTemplates | ForEach-Object {
			if ($_.ID -eq 53) {
				Write-Host ("Blank Internet web template is already enabled for web '", $_.Title, "' at ", $_.Url -join "") -NoNewline
		$allWebTemplates = $web.GetAvailableWebTemplates(1033);
		$allWebTemplates | Where{ $_.ID -eq 53 } | ForEach-Object {
		Write-Host ("Enabling Blank Internet web template for web '", $_.Title, "' at ", $_.Url -join "") -NoNewline
		$web.SetAvailableWebTemplates($templates, 1033);
		Write-Host " - Done." -ForegroundColor Green
Get-SPWebApplication | ForEach-Object {
	$_.Sites | Where { $_.ServerRelativeUrl -ne '/sites/example' } | ForEach-Object {
		$_.AllWebs | ForEach-Object {
			Add-SPWebTemplate $_
