WordPress plugins are great because they are both functional and allow you to integrate and run things on top of the existing software. This allows you to create almost any kind of custom stylizations within WordPress. 

Pictured below is an example of where you can find plugins on your WordPress Account Dashboard:

According to their site, Advanced Custom Fields version 5.8.7 is now available! They stated that,

“This release focuses on WordPress 5.3 compatibility, including the new high-contrast admin styles.
