That works in the header.php great, but I'm still getting the <img> tag, and
therefore the image, outputted.

I've tried filtering out the <img> using the following methods, but they
BOTH seem to break the above filter and the [caption] is outputted but no
<img> - very strange! Here are the methods I've tried:

$pattern = '/<img[^>]+>/is';
$string = get_the_content();
$string = preg_replace($pattern, '', $string);
echo $string;


echo strip_tags(get_the_content(''),

Any other ideas of how I could get rid of the pesky <img>?
