I have a site I am building for a client. They offer weekly specials for their restaurant. I/they have decided the best method for them to update these specials is to see if there is a possibility that I can set up some sort of webform hidden on the webserver to act like a "special modifier" I'm wondering if there is a somewhat easy way to do this already made up, or if it is something I'll have to engineer myself.

My goal is for them to open either an application or a webpage, type in the food items that will be on the specials and when they hit submit it will update the html file containing the specials.

Hey sorry for the delay. I forgot I made this post.

Thank you for your suggestion! The bots have nothing to gain by utilizing it since it would just change one webform and nothing on that server is important information haha.

What could happen is that they fill the web page with spam or even malware that may affect visitors' browsers. But if you make sure to get email notifications about new patches for the blog software the risk should be negligible.
