How can I sort or order the boxes? When I create a new box it becomes the first on the page. I would like to be able to sort it by "newest / oldest"; id number; alphabetical, etc.

You can use the Post Types Order plugin:

Rearranging them with that plugin didn't actually change the order on the page. Any other tips? Thanks

Which page are you displaying the boxes on? I think the Post Types Order plugin is only for changing the order manually (it won't automatically change the order of the boxes by ID, alphabetically, etc.). You could still arrange the boxes from newest to oldest, though.

My boxes aren't on my posts page-- the plugin lets me move around the boxes but then when I submit changes they don't actually change positions on the webpage. I want to change the order manually, but the plugin doesn't seem to actually work for me. Any ideas? Thanks
