Download List Control and Ordering
An option exists in the Download List widget properties to show documents as they appear in the backend
...but there's no way to re-order them in the backend (unless I'm missing it) :)
1) I need a way to re-order
2) I need a way to change the publish date (site migration, uploading old documents)
