Hi, sorry for my slow reply, I’m on vacation but I’ll be back at work again next week.
To answer your questions:
1) If you install the latest beta (see http://mappresspro.com/betas ) you can use a POI list ‘template’ to display whatever you like. I haven’t completed the beta documentation yet so there’s only an overview in the release notes. If you need help with the template before it’s available let me know.
2) The beta also applies a default sort by title, and has a filter you can use to apply your own sorting. You can also drag & drop markers on individual maps. Also, if you use a mashup, you can apply a sort order using the mashup query – WordPress offers sort by post date and some other fields.
