The table of contents page sorts trips either alphabetically or by the entry date. To make sure the trips are in date order, I always enter the posting date as the day after the last date used the trip page. For example, my latest trip was from 22 March 2021 to 25 March 2021. I changed the "Posting time" field to 26 March 2021 and this is what shows on the table of contents.

All my trips bar one have stop dates entered but they don't appear in chronological order in the overview.

They do, but based on the highest single date you've entered for any stop during your trip (not on the name of the trip), and you have entered some dates for some stops that are wrong, and thus messing up the order.
E.g. the Wandering, WA and the Cuballing, WA stops have a departure date of may 2021 rather than sep 2020, which is why the "2020 September Narrogin" trip appears before the "2021 Cruiseliner Pemberton/Albany" trip.
I suspect that when you were visiting a place for a single day, you didn't enter a departure date at all, but that the system has "today" as its default.

Similarly, Grotto dello Smeraldo has nov 2020 as its arrival and departure date, which is why "2003" Italy appears as high as it does. I suspect here that you wanted to insert that stop in the middle of the trip, but didn't finish doing so?

I didn't check what's wrong with the 2016 trip, but something similar will be at play there. Let me know if you can't find it yourself and I'll have a closer look.

You're talking about the blogs, but garint63 doesn't use the blogs here, and is talking about the map.
