I just moved my site to a new host and I had 3.7.7 installed.
I exported/imported the XML file and pages do show up but all the theme settings are gone

can someone please help me in easy steps, I'm not very technical and about to pull my hair out.

Thanks

Did you export and import the theme settings or did you just export and import the site content? To move a site means moving the entire database which is more than exporting and importing the xml. You would either have to use a tool to migrate the site or you have to export and import the the database or minimally you could do what you did along with exporting and importing the theme settings along with copying the theme images (logo, banner, favicon, etc.) to the new location.

Hello Larry
I think i only exported the site content (use the export/import within WP) and copied all the files from the old site.
is the information somewhere in the files? or will i have to go back to the old host and copy something else?
How do I export the theme settings?

teh 'wordpress' export function only exports the page/post data. you need to do a database export using phpMyAdmin or a plugin like 'backupbuddy'

In addition, if you did not copy the wp-content folder, you will have lost all your media uloads.

I did copy the wp_content folder and uploaded it to the new site.

Now the problem is that the site hosting has already been moved and I don't seem to have access to the old phpMyAdmin, however if I get back there what would i need to export and how - sorry total novice when it comes to this stuff.

Thanks and I really appreciate the help

If you can get into the cpanel or whatever the old host used, you should find a database section and hopefully phpMyAdmin. You select your database and tell it to do an export of all tables to a file and download it to your computer.

If you have never used phpMyAdmin, you should find a friend that has or hire someone to help you.
