This code snippet helps you to build a mega navbar with a search box for Bootstrap 3/4. It is useful for heavy content websites to make it easy to browse site content. The mega menu depends on Bootstrap native navbar and jQuery hover-dropdown JS.

How to create Bootstrap Mega Navbar with Search Box

1. First of all load the Bootstrap, animate, and Font Awesome CSS into your HTML page.

    <link rel='stylesheet' href=''>
    <link rel='stylesheet' href=''>
    <link rel='stylesheet' href=''>

2. Create HTML structure for the mega menu as follows:

<nav class="navbar" role="navigation">
    <!-- Brand and toggle get grouped for better mobile display -->
    <div class="navbar-header">
      <button type="button" class="navbar-toggle" data-toggle="collapse" data-target="#navbar-collapse-1">
<span class="toggle-menu ">MENU</span>
    <!--  <a class="navbar-brand" href="#">Home</a> -->

    <!-- Collect the nav links, forms, and other content for toggling -->
    <div class="collapse navbar-collapse" id="navbar-collapse-1">
      <ul class="nav navbar-nav">
        <li><a href="#">Home page</a></li>
		<li  class="dropdown mega-dropdown"><a href="#" class="dropdown-toggle" data-hover="dropdown" data-toggle="dropdown">Products <span class="caret"></span> </a>

<!--  mega menu -->		
<ul class="dropdown-menu mega-dropdown-menu row">
	<li class="col-sm-3">
    <a class="title-submenu" href="#">For womans <span class="caret"></span> </a> 
			<li> <a href="#">Jackets</a></li>
			<li> <a href="#">Shoes</a></li>
			<li> <a href="#">Lorem ipsum</a></li>
			<li> <a href="#">Something</a></li>
			<li> <a href="#">Good shirts</a></li>
	<li class="col-sm-3"><a href="#">For men<span class="caret"></span></a> 
			<li> <a href="#">Trousers</a></li>
			<li> <a href="#">Jackets</a></li>
			<li> <a href="#">Shirts </a></li>
			<li> <a href="#">Kardiagni</a></li>
			<li> <a href="#">Product name</a></li>
	<li class="col-sm-3"><a href="#">For children<span class="caret"></span> </a> 
			<li> <a href="#">Product name</a></li>
			<li> <a href="#">Product name2</a></li>
			<li> <a href="#">Product name3</a></li>
			<li> <a href="#">Product name4</a></li>
			<li> <a href="#">Product name5</a></li>							
	<li class="col-sm-3"><a href="#">For home<span class="caret"></span></a> 
			<li> <a href="#">Blankets</a></li>
			<li> <a href="#">Pillows</a></li>
	<li class="col-sm-3"><a href="#">Uniforms</a> </li>
<!--  mega menu // -->
	<li><a href="#">Detail view</a></li>
	<li><a href="#">Certificate</a></li>
	<li class="dropdown"><a href="html-about.html" class="dropdown-toggle" data-hover="dropdown" data-toggle="dropdown">About us</a>
		<ul class="dropdown-menu">
			<li><a href="#">Our History</a></li>
			<li><a href="#">Vacancies in company</a></li>
		<li><a href="#"> Contacts </a></li>
	<form action="#" method="get" class="searchform navbar-form" role="search">
	<input type="hidden" value="search" name="view">
	<div class="input-group">
	<input type="text"  name="searchword" required class="form-control" placeholder="Search" name="q">
		<div class="input-group-btn">
	<button class="btn" type="submit"><i class="glyphicon glyphicon-search"></i></button>
     </div><!-- /.navbar-collapse -->

3. Add the following custom CSS code to style the navbar.

/* ------------ top menu --------------  */
.navbar{font-family:Arial; background-color:#4F0D1B;  border:0;  border-radius:0px}

.navbar-collapse{padding-left:0; padding-right:0;}
	.navbar-toggle{margin:7px; color:#fff}
.navbar{margin:0; z-index:999;}
ul.navbar-nav > li > a{color:#fff; padding:20px 30px; line-height: 30px; transition:all ease 0.5s; z-index: 99; min-width: 96px; text-align: center; text-transform: uppercase; }

ul.navbar-nav > li a:hover, ul.navbar-nav >, 
ul.nav .open > a:focus, ul.nav li > a:focus	{background-color:#830F27; transition:all ease 0.5s;}

/* when clicked */
.nav .open > a, .nav .open > a:hover, .nav .open > a:focus {
    background-color: #830F27;

/* submenu style */
.navbar .dropdown-menu{z-index:999; min-width:100%; border:0; background-color:#4F0D1B}
.navbar .dropdown-menu  li a{text-align:left; padding:15px; color:#fff; }

/*  mega menu */ 
.mega-dropdown { position: static !important; }
.mega-dropdown-menu { z-index:999999;
  padding: 20px 0px;
  width: 100%;
  -webkit-box-shadow: none;
.mega-dropdown-menu ul{margin:0; padding:0}
.mega-dropdown-menu  li {color:#fff; list-style: outside none}

.mega-dropdown-menu  li  a{padding:5px!important; display:block!important;  }
.mega-dropdown-menu  li  a:hover{background-color:#4F0D1B!important}

a.title-submenu{font-weight:bold; color:rgba(0,0,0,.5); }

/* search form  */ 
.searchform{padding:10px 15px; float:right} 
.searchform .btn{ color:rgba(200,200,200,.5);border: 1px solid transparent; background-color:#830F27; }
.searchform .form-control{
	border:0; color:#fff;
   -webkit-transition: all .5s ease;
   -moz-transition: all .5s ease;
   transition: all .5s ease;
.searchform .form-control:hover, .searchform .form-control:focus {
   width: 170px!important;

4. Now, load the jQuery, Bootstrap JS, and hover-dropdown JavaScript file just before the closing of the body tag.

  <script src=''></script>
<script src=''></script>
<script src=''></script>

5. Finally, use the jQuery stopPropagation function to prevent hover on click event.

jQuery(document).on('click', '.mega-dropdown', function(e) {
