I read this part a number of times.  From reading it it seems like this is what I want.  I guess though I don't understand this part "Page id/external url parameter is loaded into “current” (TS data array).".

My news is of type "links to internal pages" and i've configured it to load into a LIST container.  Does the "Page id/external url parameter is loaded into “current” (TS data array)." mean I have further configurations to make?

Yeah, I wouldn't want that anyway (and I do have normal news LIST records on the same page.
