The Custom Category Order extension does not change the order of the entries, it changes the order of the which the categories themselve are displayed. For example, try this. Navigate to the Connections : Categories admin page and scroll to the bottom of the list of categories. Edit that category changing its order to
1. After you save the change that category will now display at the top of the categories instead the bottom.
The only way to control the order the entries are displayed is to use the Custom Entry Order extension. There is no way to group the entry list by category, sorry.
Hope this answers you question thoroughly!
