I have product inside a fraction, like this:

\[
\phi_n(t)=\frac{t^n-1}{\prod_{\substack{
    d \mid n,\\
    d<n.}} \phi_d(t)}
\]

And that places the "limits" of the product on it's side, not behind, like it would normally do if it were not inside a fraction, like this

\[
\prod_{\substack{
    d \mid n,\\
    d<n.}} \phi_d(t)
\]

Is there a way to make it display the limits behind the product?

You may use \limits:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\begin{document}


\[
\phi_n(t)=\frac{t^n-1}{\prod\limits_{\substack{
    d \mid n,\\
    d<n.}} \phi_d(t)}
\]

\end{document}

The reason is that fractions started in display style have their numerator and denominator in text style (where limits are set on the side rather than above and below); \limits is the correct answer; but probably I'd try a different way to express the identity. –  egreg Dec 16 '13 at 21:12
