Joomla extension to display collection of articles - for each article: TITLE, EXTRACTED IMG, BRIEF TEXT and READ MORE

Posted on 2011-04-25

I would like to realize something of this sort:

I don't want to create an accordion but a page where one after the other all my selected articles get loaded as inside each of the panes of this accordion. Title on top, image extracted from article, brief text and a readmore link (it would be great if this readmore could open in a lightbox or similar) which would open the full article. Basically it would look like all the panes of the accordion open at the same time.

Is there an extension that would do that?
