I've got this section of code in my template:

<% if photoOfTheDay.Width > 450 %>
$photoOfTheDay.setWidth(450)
<% else %>
$photoOfTheDay
<% end_if %>

This seems correct syntactically to me, but I keep getting a parse error for the .ss file, and it's throwing it when it hits the <% end_if %>, saying there is an unexpected brace.

Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

Look in the SSViewer.php, there's no > or < comparator available.
I think that's the problem you're having.

Solution is to have the controller to return a true or false, based on it's height/width.
