I've been using WP for over 2 months now and have never in the past read any of my posts outside of the main page. I use WP out of the box and don't tweak anything except for changing themes, adding widgets, etc.
I read one of my first posts just some time back and noticed that there was a NEXT POST / PREVIOUS POST above. Now with the titles of my posts a bit long a times, it sometimes happens that they somehow overlap, and thus distort the view of the page.
Straight to the point question: Is there any way (that I might have missed) to remove the NEXT POST / PREVIOUS POST tag that appears on top of the posts that is being read?
Side question: I sometimes see a smiley on the side of a page or two of my blog. But I don't know how it got there.
Thanks for the assistance.
