I was able to remove the date by installing the plugin WP Date Remover. So, that part is OK. It looks as though when I click on the image in the "box", it is linking to the post I had created which has the image in it, also. That is where the date was coming from.
I am thinking that I could go back to the image itself & edit it so that it links to a "Page" for the image. That way, when the image is clicked, it goes to where I want it to go instead of a post.
This is difficult to put into words... :(
Here's the page I'm referring to: http://kladewerks.com/from-the-garden-boxer/
The page is a test page. I'm looking to create a nice gallery for his work. I'm experimenting with a number of different things.
Thanks for your help,
