The stylesheet is always registered, so you can enqueue it just by referencing the ID. This is more forward compatible in case the file location changes. I've also adjusted the advice on preventing it from being loaded in the admin panel to use the method recommended by the Codex.

comment Theming Using Bootstrap Glyphicons and WordPress Dashicons
Well, WordPress Dashicons are essentially a "Glyphicon", right? I'm using them in my WordPress themes. So AKA the frontend. Bootstrap's Glyphicons do a fantastic job at scaling, no matter what the font size is. I just feel like there's some kind of CSS tweak to enable WordPress's Dashicons to behave the same as Bootstrap's Glyphicons.

comment Ask user permission when activating a plugin
You could set an option somewhere that states whether the user has agreed or disagreed. Simple true/false option value. Build your plugin in a way which it relies on your option value being true. If it's false, don't provide any further functionality of your plugin to the user. You could have a settings page, admin notice, or even a popup if so desired. But in order for that to work, your plugin needs to be activated. Your plugin is activated, but doesn't do anything until the user has been prompted to agree/disagree to your terms of use. Once agreed, provide full functionality.

comment Getting the Site URL Including the Front Base
I have a plugin which needs to know the post type URLs and taxonomy URLs. As you know, post types and taxonomies can have the front base appended.

comment Getting the Site URL Including the Front Base
Well, yeah. Ideally that would be nice if you knew what the front base was. What if you don't know what the front base is? AKA working in a plugin, which the front base could be different on several sites using the plugin. That's why I was going to retrieve the contents of permalink_structure option, and parse it myself, then append to home_url(); or site_url();. I was just curious if there was an easier way.
