Help With Theme Width Please - Spice - 2014-09-11

In version 1.6 I was always able to set the background width to 75% so more of the background would show.
In version 1.8 it doesn't seem to want to work the same way

The areas circled in red are the problem. The search box is overlapping and the text in the last post column is cut off. Can anyone please give me an idea of a fix. When everything is set to 90% it's all bueno but some want to be able to have the forum a little narrower.

I can give you the url but I don't have the theme available for viewing by anyone but admins until I find a solution. Screenshot isn't enough?

We'll have to take a look at the css...

Will this help?
The following is the portion of the CSS for the theme I am working on. As far as I can see there are only two areas where you adjust the themes width. Am I wrong?
body {
background: #ffffff url(;
color: #333;
text-align: center;
line-height: 1.4;
margin: 0;
font-family: Tahoma, Verdana, Arial, Sans-Serif;
font-size: 14px;
font-weight: bold;
overflow-y: scroll;

a:link {
text-decoration: none;

a:visited {
color: #4e2a16;
text-decoration: none;

a:active {
color: #9d6d2f;
text-decoration: underline;

#container {
background: url( repeat center top;
background-position: top center;
background-attachment: fixed;
border: 15px double #bb7755;
margin: auto auto;
margin-top: 50px;
margin-bottom: 50px;
border: 15px double #bb7755;


.wrapper {

width: 75%;
min-width: 970px;
max-width: 1500px;
margin: auto auto;

Sorted, thank you.
