Hope everyone is keeping safe. I am deploying a Jekyl site with netlify for the first time so maybe I have missed something so easy but here is my problem.
I have a Jekyll site deployed with GitHub pages that I want to access the netlify cms admin with. I have had this site deployed with netlify on the URL
kind-roentgen-d4d11e.netlify.app and I have been able to access the admin using netlify identity. The problem comes when I want to access the same admin from the github pages hosted domain.I get the error below.
Unable to access identity settings. When using git-gateway backend make sure to enable Identity service and Git Gateway.
Could there be something I need to setup from either github or netlify side to enable this?

We hope you’re staying safe as well, and sorry to keep you waiting on this! You won’t be able to use Netlify Identity to log into a site that’s hosted on GitHub. Identity is a feature you enable in your Netlify dashboard, and it allows you to invite people to your CMS and edit content without them having GitHub accounts… but we do a lot behind the scenes, so it won’t work if you leave our platform.
The Netlify CMS site lists some other authentication methods for getting into your /admin section if you want to check them out?
