we are using web templates for several applications to create site collections. The issue is that when we got to View All Site Content --> Create we see web templates from other applications in the farm. How can I customize what items appear under the create menu. I want to prevent these templates from appearing in the item selection.
Appreciate any guidance on this

Web template is saved to the site collection's Solution Gallery. on that Solution Gallery you can deactivate Solutions(Web template)

this did not work for us since it was showing the web templates that are in the _layouts folder of the sharepoint server. It was not deployed as a feature.
We ended up adding custom code on the web provisioning event of a site collection remove those templates from the template gallery of the site.
This worked well for us
