Hi there,
I would like to create an enterprise wiki on my sharepoint 2010 site but when i click on New Site the "Enterprise Wiki" template does not exist there.
I already tried the Technet article (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee837434.aspx) but it still does not work.
I tried the power shell method and it does not work either.
Running the Get-SPWebTemplate commandlet gives the available list of templates and Enterprise Wiki is there!

Hi ACH1LLES,

I found the solution:

I had to activate "SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure" feature in Site Settings -> Site collection features after that, Enterprise Wiki showed up in the templated list.
