Original BLINK doesn't work on Web editor

I'm getting back into the Arduino after a few years away. I noticed the classic Blink example has been changed.

Instead of using
pinMode(13, OUTPUT);

it's now

The original classic pinMode(13, OUTPUT); still works fine on the desktop IDE 1.8.16, but on the web editor I get a compile error and was wondering why.

Errors below...

Error during build: exit status 1

Weird. I think the file was corrupt. I modified the new built in BLINK to use the old variables and now it compiles correctly.

Looks like you accidentally got both .ino files in the same project.
