How would I open the detail view in a new page so it doesn't show my HTML stuff from the first page? Thanks!

When I need something to show up in a different workspace, I just create another page with the same view and use "creative" linking in the view to get them around to the different locations of the application. In this way you might create a view of all entries and then within the dynamic content insert a "dynamic" custom link. That might be:[id]. So maybe I have my view with all of my entries directly posted at the home URL and then on a page called "books" as well. The dynamic link above will push you over to the books page and then list out the detailed entry based on the "hacked" dynamic URL we created in the parent content.

Thank you for your reply! Still trying to work it out as I'm VERY new to all of this, but, that being said, I currently have the columns of the listing view linked to the details page. Do I turn that off? If so, then how would I get it to link to the new page I created? Thanks again!

I may not fully understand your requirement. Are you saying that you have HTML fields and do not wish to show those in a view?
