#39950 closed defect (bug) (wontfix)

window is reloaded after changing page_for_posts in Customizer even with transport->postMessage

I am setting up postMessage transport like this:

$wp_customize->get_setting( 'page_for_posts' )->transport = 'postMessage';

My hook function ins theme-customize.js is invoked, but the window gets refreshed immediately afterward which prevents doing anything meaningful.

It's also happening for page_on_front and probably show_on_front settings.

postMessage works correctly for other components for me.

Actually, the preview isn't refreshing, but rather it is changing the URL to the page you just switched to. This is intentional. See this snippet in customize-controls.js:

// Change the previewed URL to the selected page when changing the page_for_posts.
api( 'page_for_posts', function( setting ) {
        setting.bind(function( pageId ) {
                pageId = parseInt( pageId, 10 );
                if ( pageId > 0 ) {
                        api.previewer.previewUrl.set( api.settings.url.home + '?page_id=' + pageId );

This behavior was introduced in #30677.
