Messed up category template (3 posts)

    I was trying to edit my category template on my website so it would only show excerpts of posts rather than the whole thing. I ended up messing the entire thing up somehow and now it won't show anything. I tried to restore my backup file but I think I downloaded the wrong copy. The theme I use is twenty eleven. Does anyone have a way where I can return my categories back to normal?

    Download twenty eleven theme. Open category template and copy and paste to your site. Or did you say you did that and it didnt work? I would see no reason why it wouldnt unless something else is wrong.

    the actual code for the output of the post content is in content.php of Twenty Eleven - possibly try to restore that file.

    also, before you continue with customisations, create a child theme to make the edit in - http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes
