This is the mobile version of the site, which is served depending on the user-agent your browser sends us.

Check the footer to switch between mobile and regular versions of any Stack Exchange site, by clicking on the link in the footer that says

| mobile |


full site

    As an aside: the "full" link doesn't seem to be a link, but it is. Just click it.

Looks like you are getting the mobile view of Stack Overflow.

Perhaps your browser has an option to switch user agents or emulate a mobile browser? If so, check if it hasn't been enabled.

You could also have ended up on the mobile site by clicking the mobile link in the footer; there will be a full site link in the same place to switch back.
