Please, do not “dump” code on the forums. It makes it very difficult to read/ navigate the discussion. Small amounts of code necessary to demonstrate a problem are fine, but always use code blocks so it is formatted correctly. If you need to share large amounts of code, use codepen or make a gist on github.

I have the width of the “container” set at 100%. I have two “sidebars” on either side of the “content”. I believe my website is 1600px wide …

No, as you pointed out, your website is 100% wide.

Just FYI, your site doesn’t seem to lay out properly on larger screens, either: likely the same problem.

The administrators at the FThemes support forum have told me that the problem is that the “container” width is set at a percentage value …but, they won’t give me the CSS code I would need

Well, it’s a free theme that was not custom made for your site. You should either use it as was intended, or find a theme that does (or have one built). Given the fact that you are not using the theme as intended, there is really no fault in their refusal to provide a “fix.”

When working with website layouts, you need to consider different screen sizes. You can’t design for one window size on one monitor and assume it will work everywhere.

As for your specific problem, the reason things are moving out of place is that you have a container with a width that does not match the total width of its contents: sometimes things will wrap unexpectedly (because there is not enough space), sometimes things will not wrap when you expect them to (too much space).

Try setting the #container width to match the total width of its children (the 1600px you mentioned). This might solve things (though it makes the theme decidedly un-responsive), or might cause other problems, but it’s a place to start.
