Default Forum: small text sizes in Safari.

Using Safari as my favo Browser, Cockos forum texts are really quite small for me.
Opening Cockos Forum in Chrome OSX looks always by defaults omewhat bigger and thus better readable for me.

Any OSX geek knows how i can have Cockos forum appear abit bigger by default, when opening Forum page in Safari ?

(btw: tried all the Cockos Forum Themes but no difference in default text size for me).

On OSX 10.11.6 the forum looks identical in Safari and Chrome on my MBP 15". Strange, that it's different in our case.

Have you changed the view with CMD- once ... try CMD+

Thanks for your help !

Yes, tried CMD + keycombo, but then the enlargement of text doesn't "stick";
when i go to another forum section afterwards, still the small text size.

I have bookmarked the cockos forum page in safari ; when i click on that bookmark, i wish it would show me the page at a decent text size, not that small.

I used to set the zoom level at 110% to increase the forum's small font size to a comfortable level (Firefox remembers it), but I've since migrated to a user CSS (using an extension called "Stylus", don't know if Safari has a similar one). Here's the bit that increases the font sizes:

Code:
/* For the REAPER 5 forum theme */
body               { font-size: 15px; }
td, th, p, li      { font-size: 15px; }
.smallfont         { font-size: 12px; }
.thead             { font-size: 11px; }
textarea, .bginput { font-size: 15px; }
.navbar            { font-size: 14px !important; }

Into some Safari extension that allow setting custom site-specific CSS code (as far as I know stock Safari only supports global custom CSS). A quick Googling suggests these two: http://sobolev.us/stylish/ and https://freestyler.ws/.

EDIT: Looks like Safari can remember custom per-site zoom levels too: https://apple.stackexchange.com/a/304694.
