Divi’s filterable portfolio module is a great and easy way to display your work and projects on your website. You can use categories to create different filters for your portfolio module, and it offers an easy way to keep an updated portfolio without having to modify your website design every time. Simply add a new project in the WordPress dashboard, then it will auto-populate in the portfolio module on your website as long as it is properly categorized.

In this tutorial, we will show you 3 different ways to style the pagination in Divi’s filterable portfolio module. By customizing this design, you can make the portfolio module fit with the overall design of your website and draw attention to the work you want to display.

Let’s get started!

Sneak Peek

Here is a preview of what we will design

What You Need to Get Started

Install and Activate Divi

Before we begin, install and activate the Divi Theme and make sure you have the latest version of Divi on your website.

Add Portfolio Projects

In order for the portfolio to populate with projects once we add it to our page, we first need to add the projects in the WordPress dashboard. Select Projects in the WordPress dashboard sidebar, then add a new project. Make sure the project has a featured image and a category so that it can be filtered.

Now, you are ready to start!

How to Style the Pagination in Divi’s Filterable Portfolio Module

Create a New Page with a Premade Layout

Let’s start by using a premade layout from the Divi library. We will use the Painter Portfolio Page from the Painter layout pack for this design.

Add a new page to your website, give it a title, and select the option to Use Divi Builder.

We will use a premade layout from the Divi library for this example, so select Browse Layouts.

Search for and select the Painter Portfolio Page layout.

Select Use This Layout to add the layout to your page.

Now we are ready to build our design.

Add the Filterable Portfolio Module

We will be replacing the existing portfolio content on this page with the filterable portfolio module. First, delete the existing portfolio section.

Next, insert a new section on the page, below the “recent work” section.

Then add a row with a single column to the section.

Add the filterable portfolio module to the new row.

Your filterable portfolio should populate with your projects, as long as they have been added to the project section of the WordPress dashboard.
