When an Announcement component to a page in a Group Space, the default behaviour is for this component to display announcements from the Announcement Manager associated with this Group same Space.
It's possible to edit the properties of this component to point to an Announcement Manager in another Group Space. This is done by editing the component properties and setting the Forum ID to point to the Forum Id associated with that other Group Space.
This works as expected for the announcements themselves.
However, other icons do not work as expected - Announcement Manager and RSS Feed icons on this component still point to the original default Announcement manager for the current space.
The announcement messages and the edit icons point to different places.
Is there a way to get these icons to point to the announcements from a different space?

The ultimate aim is to have three different announcements portlets on a single page pointing to three different announcements from different group spaces.
