I am using SharePoint 2007 + Windows Server 2008 with SharePoint 2007's publishing portal template.

When publish a page, I have to go through check-in/request for approval/approve process. Any solutions to skip request for approval and approval process (i.e. when we check-in an item, it will be published directly without approval)?

You can remove the Workflow and Approval Process from the pages Library.

To do so Site Actions - > View All Site Content - > Open Pages Lib and In the Pages Library select Settings -> Document Library Settings -> Versioning settings

Select the Following Say no to Require content approval for submitted items? Select No Versioning

And In Workflow settings you can remove the Workflow.

    Is turning off "Require content approval for submitted items" enough to disable the approval process only?

    @Alex : I have changed the Answer, we need to remove the WF else there will be an additional step to approve the items through the workflow.
