For some reason, my password reset link on one of my sites is no longer working...it redirects to a 404 page.

It's URL /login?action=lostpassword is not working...any ideas on how to fix this?

Thanks in advance!

the default url should be site/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword. How are you generating the link? – imHavoc Nov 1 '11 at 5:12
I'm utilizing the sidebar login plugin and letting it point to the generic wordpress link. After changing it to the one you posted, it finally took me to the correct reset password link page but when I try to enter an email address to send a new password it takes me to a 404 page again because it tries to go to /login?action=lostpassword url – BentCircle Nov 1 '11 at 5:33
Have you tried disabling all plugins and see if it still throws a 404 error? Also is this the plugin you are using: wordpress.org/extend/plugins/sidebar-login? – imHavoc Nov 2 '11 at 6:34
