Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

If I try to vote on the mobile site, all I get is the message that an error occurred. I've tried clearing my network settings, and logging out an in. Nothing fixes it. The only way to fix it is to use the full site. Who broke it this time?

For reference, I'm using an iPhone 4S with iOS 6.1.3 running Chrome 27.0.1453.10 (WebKit 536.26):

Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; CPU iPhone OS 6_1_3 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/536.26 (KHTML, like Gecko) CriOS/27.0.1453.10 Mobile/10B329 Safari/8536.25

I can report the same problem since yesterday on the android standard browser (galaxy s3). Visiting the desktop site from a mobile browser doesnt show the problem however – Richard Tingle Jul 17 '13 at 6:06
Tried to up vote this but can't. From chrome on nexus 4 – user000001 Jul 17 '13 at 6:35
@user000001 Its a conspiracy! Or use the "full site" link at the bottom to temporarily change to desktop mode – Richard Tingle Jul 17 '13 at 7:01
@Richard Thanx it worked :-) – user000001 Jul 17 '13 at 7:40

I voted this from my mobile! – hims056 Jul 17 '13 at 8:38
What went wrong, if I might ask? :) – Shadow Wizard Jul 17 '13 at 8:50
short explanation: mobile view wasn't up to date... – m0sa Jul 17 '13 at 8:55
I assume the long explanation comes with a ream of source code for context – Richard Tingle Jul 17 '13 at 8:57
It was my fault. There is a hidden input in the voting div which the voting js uses to submit the post id with the vote. I added a name attribute to it and changed the js to look for that name and forgot to add the same attribute in the mobile view, and....whammo! no voting for you! Thanks to @m0sa for fixing it. – Ben Collins Jul 18 '13 at 17:38
