Why is "qu'est ce que la date aujourd'hui?" wrong?

The structure is wrong. It is "quel est la date aujourd'hui". Alternatively, you can say "Quel jour est-ce que nous sommes ?" or "Quel jour sommes-nous aujourd'hui ?" or "Nous sommes quel jour aujourd'hui ?"

Would it be correct to drop the "aujourd'hui" and just say "quelle est la date"?

"Quelle est la date" is only "What is the date?" which isn't the same as "What is today's date?"

A: "L'anniversaire de ma mére est en octobre."

B: "Quelle est la date?"

I suppose in practice/when speaking, "today's date" would be understood implicitly depending on the context, but the two sentences are not always interchangeable.

Anything wrong with 'quelle date somme nous aujourd'hui'? This is about the only thing I can remember my French teacher saying at school . .

It's not considered to be proper French.

Shouldn't this be quelle est la date d'aujourd'hui (with d')

That is also accepted.

Why is "quelle est la date d'aujourd'hui" correct? (I.e. why the d' before aujourd'hui)
