    Does that theme come with a plugin named, "Custom CSS", "Custom Styles", or "Jetpack", or are you using a Child Theme?

    Hi,

    You need to edit you styles.css (line 739).

    .hentry,
    .no-results,
    #author-info,
    #disqus_thread,
    #content .error404{
     width: 100%;
    }

    Change the width to 100%

    A good tool to read up on that is: Firebug (read up on that on the internet, you will thank me later!) :-)

    It has a "Custom CSS Styles" under 'Theme Options'.

    Okay, don't edit the theme's files. This will cause you headache when you're debugging issues and when you update the theme. Instead add CSS within the Custom CSS section of the dashboard.
