Bare bone themes are great, personally I prefer them over frameworks. I have noticed that 'liking' one over another comes down to how it feels, so I would suggest trying several out until you find one. For instance a lot people like WordPress boilerplate but I could not get the hang of it. My current favorite is Handcrafted WP, since it very similar to my ...

Canvas Purpose Advanced standalone/parent theme, uses WooFramework. For sketching out sites and concepts. Building a version 1 without having to do so from scratch. Strong features I find the theme code very easy to hack for my purposes. Canvas uses a lot of new HTML and CSS features in a smart way. Downsides Not free (but free software) ...

Syntaxhighlighter is by far the best plug-in, so it's just a matter of editing the CSS that comes with it (as that will give you total control). The horizontal scroll doesn't seem great at first either, however your readers will appreciate that important code structure doesn't get the "word wrap" treatment (thus, breaking everything).

I would actually recommend a hybrid approach - take a good theme for showcasing photos and substitute in your YouTube videos. Photo themes give you large portions of screen real estate for imagery, and if you do it right it's not difficult to substitute an embedded object (i.e. YouTube video) for the images. Some good ones to start with: Aperture by ...

For 3 & 4, try Booking Calendar: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/booking/. I just installed it on a site and it seems to work ok on first impression. It comes with a widget that shows a little calendar that shows dates that are booked, dates that someone has requested, and open dates. It also ships with a request form. It'll send emails when a ...

For a slider, really liking Nivo Slider: http://nivo.dev7studios.com/features/#wordpress I've also used Anything Slider, which I personally prefer for the stop/start feature when cycling items with text, but you'd have to build in the functionality yourself (whether with a category, a gallery, whatever): http://css-tricks.com/examples/AnythingSlider/

Of course it is worth looking at Jigoshop themes. Next there are WooCommerce themes based on WooCommerce plugin which is quiet derived from Jigoshop plugin (I would give a try to Sommerce Shop theme too). All in all my favorite plugin is still WP e-Commerce plugin and its system of templates. I used one great theme with lot of functionality based on this ...

If you don't mind getting your hands dirty with code you could combine both themes into the same folder. IE: wp-content/themes/yourtheme/secondtheme Then add the code in the header.php for your primary theme to check if its a mobile site and send the user to wp-content/themes/yourtheme/secondtheme/index.php Probably a pretty big nightmare. The proper way ...

I would suggest that you flip the question to What plugin is good for posting code?. You can only do so much with PRE and CODE html tags. I post code snippet's on my blog all the time using the WP-Syntax plugin. Here's a nice working example: A WordPress Blog Post with PHP, TXT and HTML snippets using the WP-Syntax Plugin It will allows me to identify the ...

I would recommend the woo themes E-Commerce theme framework. Woo Themes framework is fine coded and it is user friendly optimized. Majorly they have premium themes but they also have some free E-Commerce theme. Woo would be an all in one package. http://www.woothemes.com/themes/woocommerce-themes/

I don't know of any free ones, though I'm sure they're out there, but themeforest has a fair number of single page templates (the quality of which I can't speak to). http://themeforest.net/browse/tags/default/single%20page

Just reread your question before posting the following, so my answer's kinda not what you're asking but I would say if you're just starting with WordPress ecommerce, save yourself some wp-ecommerce headache and check out jigoshop. I've worked with Jigoshop, Marketpress & WP Ecommerce and would say Jigoshop is by far the best of the three. The Jigoshop ...

I asked a similar question, well sort of similar. Basically I wanted to create custom post types with the ability to relate one or more post types to other post types. Here is an example as to what I mean. You can decide if you want to go this route or not. A system that handles employee's for a mega corporation called MegaCorp. We have the key required ...

You should look for a theme on the WordPress themes directory and see if there's one that fits your needs. They're all free and the tag filter let's you search for themes with a certain functionality, including customizable menu. I think some of the requirements are pretty subjective, so you could consider hiring a WordPress theme developer. Other than ...

I am not completely sure from your description which parts you want to be persistent and which to be client-specific. If you build markup and stylesheet from scratch for every client and don't use much custom PHP - there isn't much left for parent theme to do here. If you do use some custom PHP in each project - it might make sense to just put together our ...
