Sierra's Failed Renewal Messages Stink

Fixing the unhelpful renewal failed message in Sierra

This little script puts the failed renewal message in a more intuitive place, and lets you customize the text. This is the before and after of GVSU's OPAC:

Before and after of this script

if(document.getElementById('renewfailmsg') != 'undefined' && document.getElementById('renewfailmsg') != null) {
// Renewal failed by III makes it hard to see
var renewalFailText = document.getElementById('renewfailmsg').innerText;
console.log(renewalFailText);
// Get rid of the see details below part.
var renewalMessage = renewalFailText.split('. ');
var renewalError = document.createElement('div');
renewalError.className = 'lib-error';
renewalError.style.clear = 'both';
renewalError.style.marginTop = '1em';
renewalError.innerHTML = '<b>' + renewalMessage[0] + '.</b> (This usually means that someone else has recalled the book, or you&#8217;ve renewed it several times already.)';
var accountTools = document.getElementById('myaccount-tools');
accountTools.appendChild(renewalError);
}
