These changes require a Divi child theme. Please check the following article if you have not set a child theme yet:

  1. In the child theme folder create a new folder, for example  includes   folder.

  2. Now copy the   divi/includes/builder/module/FilterablePortfolio.php   file into the  child-theme/includes/   folder.

  3. Rename the file to something else, for example:   custom-FilterablePortfolio.php

  4.  Open up the  custom-FilterablePortfolio.php   file and replace this code (the first line):

class ET_Builder_Module_Filterable_Portfolio extends ET_Builder_Module_Type_PostBased {


class custom_ET_Builder_Module_Filterable_Portfolio extends ET_Builder_Module_Type_PostBased {

Also, replace this line:

$this->vb_support = 'on';


$this->vb_support = 'off';

6. Next, open up  functions.php   file in your child theme folder and add the following code at the very bottom:

#Load custom Filterable Portfolio Module

function divi_custom_filterable_portfolio_module() {
get_template_part( '/includes/custom-FilterablePortfolio' );
$dcfm = new custom_ET_Builder_Module_Filterable_Portfolio();
remove_shortcode( 'et_pb_filterable_portfolio' );
add_shortcode( 'et_pb_filterable_portfolio', array( $dcfm, '_shortcode_callback' ) );

add_action( 'et_builder_ready', 'divi_custom_filterable_portfolio_module' );

function divi_custom_filterable_portfolio_class( $classlist ) {
// Blog Module 'classname' overwrite.
$classlist['et_pb_filterable_portfolio'] = array( 'classname' => 'custom_ET_Builder_Module_Filterable_Portfolio',);
return $classlist;

add_filter( 'et_module_classes', 'divi_custom_filterable_portfolio_class' );

Now you are ready to customize the Portfolio module the way you need and keep the changes while updating/reinstalling the parent Divi theme.
