See my other reply. I am dumb.
I have created two custom views. One SummaryView and one NodeDetails view.
The custom SummaryView shows a pretty simple set of resources intended to provide a very simple "dashboard" for the customer. It also provides links to the nodes to the customer to "drill down" if they want.
The custom NodeDetail view shows info about the node we want the customer to be able to see.
I currently set both the Default Summary View and Home Page View for the account to my custom SummaryView. This does what I want.
If I set the Home Page View to my custom NodeDetail view, it will indeed show the custom NodeDetail view for the node I choose when they log in. But then if they hit the "Home" link they go to the custom SummaryView, and the links in that view go to the system default NodeDetail view.
What I like is for the links in my SummaryView to link to my custom NodeDetail, which appears to be available by tacking a viewid on to the URL: NodeDetails.aspx?netobject=N:1020&viewid=53
Maybe I'm just going about this entirely wrong?
You are totally right. I thought you were in the SummaryDetail or HomePAge dropdown. My bad.
