See the faq at <https://wiki.list.org/x/4030616>. This will help with
some of this.

For the rest, I'm not sure what you are saying. If you are saying you
need to access some lists via, e.g.,
http://www.example.com/mailman/cgi-bin/..., and others via
http://www.example.net/mailman/... without the cgi-bin, that's your web
server configuration. You need to adjust that to make the ScriptAlias
(or whatever your web server uses) directives consistent over all domains.

If you are only saying some lists' pages have links with the cgi-bin and
other lists' pages have links without the cgi-bin, setting
DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN appropriately and running fix_url per the above faq
will fix it.
