I have a few custom fields, one of which is chosen via a dropdown. I don't think the type of input matters, but in this case it's a select menu.
When a certain combo of options is chosen, I disable the select via jQuery and choose a default value.
When the menu is disabled, the value is not passed along to the cart.
<select name="color"> ... </select>
When this is disabled, no "color" value is passed to the cart.
Is this just the way it is, or can I get around this? I'd like to avoid inserting hidden fields with jQuery if possible.
