Is a porous disc the same as a salt bridge?

same concept. porous disk only lets the spectator ions through, but everything is in one solution. salt bridge allows ion transfer between separate solutions. both salt bridge and porous disk have same function of keeping the solutions electrically neutral.

Also for cell diagrams salt bridges are represented by || (two lines) while Porous discs are represented by | (one line)
