post document to URL


I'd like to know if I can create a LibreOffice document with Writer and add a button so that it "posts" not just data within a form but the full document in native format (odt) to a URL.

My goal is to host LibreOffcie Writer template documents on a web server and let web browser clients download these templates. Once the user has finished editing the document he/she should be able to simply click a button within the document which then posts the full document to a PHP script (local URL) which in turn saves the document in a special folder on the server.

I'm just starting to use LO so I don't know how to do this. It seems that LO can post form data/fields to a remote URL but I don't know if it can post the full document in odt format.

Thanks in advance.
