Is there any way to have an article list (ie; on an ArticleHolder page) displayed so it's sorted in chronological order with most recent articles displayed at the top?
...other than manually sorting the pages by dragging and dropping them up the list in the CMS

Assuming you are talking about... http://doc.silverstripe.org/tutorial:2-extending-a-basic-site

something like this in your controller...

function ArticlesOrderedByCreated() {
  return  DataObject::get("ArticleHolder","","Created ASC");
}

then this in your controller...

<% if ArticlesOrderedByCreated %>
 <% control ArticlesOrderedByCreated %>
 	$Date <br />
 	$Author <br />
 	$Content <br /> 
 <% end_control %>
<% end_if %>

every dataobject (including pages or anything you create) has a "Created" and "LastEditted" value set automatically when you create it and when you edit it.
