    Look like orderby title is not sorting properly, what i expected is:

    Chapter 111 [A] (05.04.2018
    Chapter 112 [B] (08.04.2018)
    Chapter 67 [C] (11.06.2018)
    Chapter 66 [D] (09.06.2018)

    and actual is:
    Chapter 67
    Chapter 66
    Chapter 112
    Chapter 111

    Shortcode used:

    [catlist name=mycategory excludeposts=this orderby=title]

    Wordpress Version: 4.9.6
    PHP Version: 5.6.36

    What you expect is the result of PHP sort(), but alas MySQL produces different results: under the hood WP_Query uses an SQL query for ordering, not PHP functions.

    One solution could be to edit the slugs of the posts (not the titles) and change them to something with more predictable ordering, then use orderby=name.

    Or you could assign a custom field to each post and then sort by that custom field.
