Laravel truncating strings with special characters

I have been working on a CMS for months now, I have faced various challenges with laravel truncating certain special characters. I had to change the editor in the CMS from bootstrap wysiwyg to ckeditor things got quite better as there are some advance escaping options that come with it.
For example I was able to prevent '"' from becoming '" which was causing the entire string (paragraph) to truncate where ever it finds such encoding.
