Editable CMS-like field in HTML5?
Greetings everyone. I'm more like a designer than a webmaster and I've spent a month designing something unique and artistic in HTML5&JS for a customer. It's responsive and works in every navigator, platform and operating system. Gosh, it's like it has its own life.
Today I receive an email from my customer saying he wants editable fields in a section of the contact/pricing subpage. I can't say no, it's my best customer. If I had a gun in my mouth right now I would pull the trigger.
The deadline is very soon and I have no time to remake the whole website for Wordpress or any other CMS management system. Is there any way to place an applet, a script, or whatever, into the HTML code and make it easy to edit for her? Like an addon, wordpress based, allowing me to grab text from somewhere else (like a blogger site she can easily log in?) and place it in the exact spot of my website where she wants it?
I would say there must be a way, I'm just too ignorant and confused to find it. I beg your help.
The simplest solution is to change the page involved to .php so you can add some code that will either query a database or read a file containing the client's content. From there, you just need to provide an admin page that will let him edit the content using CKEditor or some other HTML/rich-text tool.
This isn't an uncommon task, so if you search a couple of the scripts directories you could probably find something pre-built, but I don't have any suggestions as to what you should use to search on. "user page editor" or something, perhaps.
Very appreciated. I will look for what you suggested. Also, I will edit this post with the prebuilt solution once I find it so it can help others in the future.

Fixed it myself. Used this small code: http://chechi.be/midas/simple-cms.zip
Freedom has nothing to do with it. Post count does, although I don't know what that number is...
