I think you are over complicating things in the other post you have. Let's use news as an example.
You create a News landing page with the repeater (both listing and single view transformation assigned), and create individual news under that. That "News Template" will be used to display individual news with URL like abc.com/news/hello-world.
Now, on your home page, you want to display only the latest 3 news with a different transformation (only the URL and title). Then you use a another repeater there point to the news section as the path, and select the different list view transformation for URL and title only (no need to select anything for selected item). The URL for "Hello World" will still be abc.com/news/hello-world, when you click on that it will be displayed by the "News template" with the selected item transformation.
Is that what you are looking at? In order for that to work, you need a regular page type, not a content only page type.
You may want to schedule a call with our consulting team to do a GoToMeeting to explain this. It will be much faster than all these discussions without visual.
